New CEO of Mangar International appointed

Mangar International has named Simon Claridge as its new CEO.

Established more than three decades ago, Mangar International is a UK healthcare company, with customers across Europe and North America.  Investment by YFM Equity Partners in 2014 has enabled the company to create a robust business strategy and Simon’s appointment as CEO is critical to the successful delivery of the ambitious growth targets.

Mangar Chairman, James Buckley said: “I am pleased to be welcoming Simon to Mangar International and look forward to him building on the recent successes we have enjoyed. He brings a wealth of experience leading teams and achieving strategic goals.  We are thrilled to have him.”

With a successful track record in developing business growth and change management, Simon has spent the last 3 years as Vice President of UK Sales for medical device company ArjoHuntleigh. Previous to that, he spent 5 years with leading pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline.

Simon said: “I’m delighted to be joining Mangar International and I’m looking forward to the challenge of implementing the new business strategy. In the short time since I arrived, I’ve been pleased to find such a motivated team of staff who are committed to business success.

“The Mangar product portfolio of inflatable moving and handling equipment is unique and already valued by healthcare professionals globally.   I feel privileged to be leading the company’s business growth at such an exciting time.”

Simon, 41 lives in Cambridge with his wife and three daughters.
