New General Manager appointed at SGB Hire

SGB Hire has appointed a new General Manager.

Philip Le Claire appointment follows the retirement of Jon Herbert, who led the company in Jersey for a number of years.

He will be working closely with Finance Director Ernie Rolland to oversee both the Hire and the Sales business in both Jersey and Guernsey.

Kevin Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of SGB (Channel Islands), said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Philip at a key time in the development of the business in the Islands. Philip’s background in construction - coupled with his extensive management experience - is exactly what we were looking for to help us to grow our successful operations in both Islands. The Channel Islands is a very important part of the SGB corporate family but clearly has the potential for even greater success."

Mr Le Claire said he was "really very excited" to join the company.

"Traditionally, people have tended to think of SGB as being purely for the Trade, and whilst a large part of our work is with the professionals, we do already have a loyal customer base in the domestic and retail market, a market that we know is massively underutilised and has great potential for growth," he added.

"We currently provide services and products to many local events too but there are many others that we know could benefit from the support of SGB. I’m really looking forward to working with every one of our people to help us grow and respond to the many varied needs of all of our customers, both old and new.”
