2019: UK B2B distributor Exertis Supplies has promoted Andrew Beaumont to the position of Managing Director following Raj Advani’s relocation to Portugal.
In what has been a planned move, Beaumont moved up from his Operations Director role on 1 April, succeeding former Managing Director Advani who will stay on with the company as Commercial Director.
The change comes following Advani’s decision to relocate to Portugal, although he will still be in the Exertis office every other week.
Beaumont knows the Exertis Supplies business well. He first joined the firm in 1998 – when it was known as Advent Data – spending over 13 years as Financial Controller before joining the Myers Group in 2014 as its Head of Finance. He returned to Exertis Supplies as Operations Director in 2017.
