Paul Standing appointed Managing Director of Facelift Access Hire
New Managing Director brings extensive operational experience to lead the next phase of growth
Facelift has promoted its Operations Director Paul Standing to Managing Director, and he has made it his stated aim to make the business the UK’s no.1 supplier of powered access equipment.
After starting his career at Facelift in 1999, Paul has worked his way up through the business, and in his role as Operations Director was instrumental in successfully developing the business’ network of depots across the UK.
As well as overseeing the day-to-day management of the business, he will lead the executive team in its focus on delivering exceptional performance and providing innovative products and services to its customers.
Gordon Leicester, Founder and Vice Chairman commented, “Like myself, Paul's entire working career has been dedicated to Facelift. He joined the company in 1999 as the "new yard man" and has since then worked himself up the ladder from the hire desk to Operations Director, primarily through his communication skills and thorough knowledge of both Facelift and the powered access industry.
“For several years Paul has been my right hand man on the running of Facelift and his new position is natural progression and acknowledgement of his abilities.”
Paul Standing added: “The powered access market is very competitive, with more potential suppliers than ever to choose from. Our goal at Facelift is to be the company that people think of first, and to be the UK’s number one supplier of 7.5-tonne-and-under access equipment.
“It’s not just about having the right kit, it’s about having the right people. My first focus in the role will be to build on our already very strong customer service by recruiting several new account managers.
“This is a great chance to drive the company forward, and I’m thrilled with this new role.”
