On behalf of the Main Board and all stakeholders, we take this opportunity to welcome new colleagues into the business who joined us during the year under review. We thank them and also every one of our people (some of whom have been with us for many years), who, through their hard work and commitment, are continuously helping us to deliver on our strategy.
- VIC, Europe
We are delighted to welcome Carlo Perini and his team to the TR family. They have been known to us for many years. Our strategy is very much aligned to their's and in its first year VIC has proved to be a very successful, self-managing and profitable addition to the Group.
With effect from 1 April 2015, we made two senior promotions. Charlie Foo took up the role of Chief Operating Officer, responsible for managing all TR Asia operations and reporting directly to Thomas Tan, MD TR Asia. Charlie has been with the Group since the acquisition of PSEP in 2011 and has a vast experience of the fasteners industry which is invaluable as the team focus on delivering further growth in the region. At PSEP, Theodore Wong has been promoted to General Manager, taking over from Charlie. Theodore has over 25 years' automotive experience and is actively involved in the industry, specifically in the Vendors Association of both Proton and Perodua in Malaysia.
Over the year, we have restructured the central sales, purchasing and quality teams to better support the regional operations and the commercial opportunities that we have identified around the world.
At the start of 2015 we also welcomed Clare Foster to the Group as she took up the role of Group Financial Controller & Company Secretary. Clare's expertise, gained over her 17 year career in finance and audit, will be invaluable to the global TR business teams.
