– AEB (International) Ltd announces management change from Claire Umney to Geoff Taylor
– Company is moving to a new, dedicated office building in Warwick, Warwickshire, UK
Warwick, 3rd April 2017 – AEB (International) Ltd, a leading provider of global trade and supply chain management software and services, is kicking off its next stage of business development: after five years of successful leadership, Claire Umney has passed the baton on to Geoff Taylor and the company is moving into a dedicated new home in Warwick, Warwickshire, UK.
Founded in Warwick in 2000, AEB (International) Ltd has followed a path of continuous growth and established itself as a leading provider of software and services for end-to-end business processes in warehousing, transport, customs, export controls, and supply chain visibility and collaboration. Following five years of successful leadership, Claire Umney hands over the general management of the UK business to Geoff Taylor in order to extend her engagement beyond national borders and drive developments on AEB’s corporate level. Claire first joined AEB in 2008 and became UK General Manager in 2011. Over the last five years, Claire and the team have achieved significant growth and an outstanding performance across all areas of the UK business – particularly in the aerospace and defence sector.
Claire said: “I’m very proud of our accomplishments in the last five years and the growth we have achieved for our UK business. Now it’s time for me to look beyond the UK. I’m very much looking forward to expanding my range of activities and driving international developments from a portfolio perspective on a corporate level. With Geoff, we have found the right person to advance our UK business and kick off the next stage of business development with new impulses and ideas. Geoff brings extensive leadership and business development experience and we have closely worked together during the transition phase since his start with the company in January 2017.”
Geoff joined AEB in his new role as General Manager after a decade with iForce Limited, a leader in retail online fulfilment, returns processing, and logistics services. Geoff has a track record of success in developing businesses, operations, and teams across all areas of a company. His roles at iForce included Managing Director, Group Sales Director, Director International, and Director of Client Services.
Geoff said: “I am delighted to be leading AEB (International) into the future. Claire has developed a very strong business and I’m taking over a strong foundation – which I intend to build on. We have an excellent and expanding product portfolio and an experienced and motivated team to drive our success. In the midst of a highly dynamic market, our UK business has some very exciting times ahead and many opportunities to grasp. I’m looking forward to developing and growing the business – and together with my team, to the challenges ahead.”
To be in the best position – also physically – to drive and accommodate future growth, AEB is also moving into new offices. After 6 years in an office complex in Leamington Spa, the managed facility could no longer meet the needs of AEB’s growing team and business. On April 24, 2017, AEB will move into a new, dedicated office building in Warwick with tailored features for its team of global trade, logistics, and IT experts. The new offices will highlight open space concepts and flexible work areas to offer a modern environment that inspires ideas and drives performance.
AEB is looking forward to meeting customers and partners at the following new address: AEB (International), 3 Olympus Court, Olympus Avenue, Tachbrook Park, Warwick, CV34 6RZ, Warwickshire, UK, Phone +44 1926 801250, Fax +44 1926 801251, Email [email protected],URL: www.aeb.com/uk
