Posted: Tuesday 11th January 2011

Casella Measurement has announced the appointment of Adrian Shepherd as its new Managing Director.

With over 20 years board-level strategic management experience in both UK and international blue-chip organisations, Adrian is a forward-thinking entrepreneur who is well set to drive growth and deliver excellence across Casellas broad range of environmental monitoring solutions.

Adrian has a proven track record in successfully growing and improving both product quality and profitability in a variety of businesses such as GEC, VideoJet, Willett and US companies Imaje and KCC and has demonstrated strong leadership skills throughout his career. He joins from technology company ITW, where he headed up both the UK and Spanish divisions and achieved record growth for the business.

In his new role, Adrian will be focussing on product development, increasing global sales and enhancing the culture of the company. He said: Casella is already highly regarded as a leading provider of high-quality occupational health, safety and environmental monitoring equipment and is a great company with exciting products and excellent people. I see it as very much part of my role to generate growth for Casella both organically and by strategic acquisition, so that we become global market leaders."

He continued: We will do this by underpinning our channels, empowering our staff and strengthening our brand name within all our markets. We will aim to design and manufacture at least one new 'great' product each year and turn thinking about measurement and testing on its head. I look forward to positioning Casella, which has a great history of technical product development, in many more markets.

Paul Finnie, VP & GM of IDEAL Europe commented: We are delighted to welcome Adrian to Casella as our new MD and are looking forward to working with him. His talent for simplifying processes in order to get things done and his expertise, leadership and ability to get the best out of people were factors that led to Casella selecting him above 430 other candidates. He will be a hugely valuable addition to the company.
