McCarthy’s announces three senior appointments

Feb 16, 2017
Yorkshire-based McCarthy’s Removals and Storage has appointed three new senior members of staff: Alan Woodward, Bob Carney and Chris Brookes.

Alan Woodward, from Camblesforth near Selby, has 20 years’ experience in the removals industry and will be taking the role of group operations manager. He began his career in 1995 as a trainee manager with Pickfords Removals, progressing to become the branch manager of its Leeds operation for over a decade, before joining McCarthy’s. Alan’s new role sees him managing and overseeing the work undertaken by the removals teams across the group.  

Bob Carney joins as commercial business development manager where he will nurture existing clients and secure new commercial contracts within the self-store, Safe Shred and archive management areas of the business. Bob, who lives in Royston near Barnsley, brings with him a wealth of experience having worked in the industry for almost 40 years. Bob was previously the Area chairman for the BAR within the Yorkshire region, a role he held for four years.  

Finally, Chris Brookes will join the business as financial controller, a position which will see him take over responsibility for the day-to-day management of the finance function whilst providing full financial and strategic support for the business. Chris, who lives in Ilkley, joins McCarthy’s following a successful career in the finance sector working with businesses including Moda in Pelle, Badgequo and Music Express.  

Mike McCarthy, Managing Director at McCarthy’s, said, “We are delighted to welcome three new arrivals to our senior team. Combined, they bring with them vast industry experience, totalling almost eight decades, and they will each be a valuable addition to the wider team. McCarthy’s continues to go through a period of strong growth so ensuring that we bring in the right people is vital, and we have every confidence that Alan, Bob and Chris will be integral to helping us achieving our future goals.” 

The trio will be based at McCarthy’s head office on Meanwood Road, Leeds. The company, which operates in Yorkshire and beyond, has further self storage facilities and businesses in Harrogate and Wakefield.
