Bishop’s Move has announced the appointment of Mark Neave as branch manager of Bishop’s Move Exeter and South West operation. Mark takes over from previous manager, Eddy Hall, who after thirteen years with the company is moving on to challenges outside the removals industry.
Mark, who has returned this year from a five-year posting in the Middle East, has been in the industry for thirty-eight years in many roles starting as a porter, export packer, sales consultant, operations manager, branch manager and general manager. He has worked in various countries throughout Europe and lived in Prague, Madrid, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Dubai before returning home to the UK.
“Bishop’s Move is an ideal match for me as it is a family company with great heritage, good leadership and quality driven throughout the organisation,” said Mark. “I’m looking forward to the challenge and at the same time I am happy to be home to spend valuable time with my wife, five children and four grandchildren.”
Bishop’s Move has also made changes within its London Division. Kevin Crockford has taken on a new challenge, moving to the role of domestic sales manager for the London region, whilst Chris Sarling takes on Kevin’s former role as branch manager of Bishop’s Move London Domestic.
Al Bingle, Bishop’s Move’s Managing Director said, “We are delighted to welcome Mark to the company and wish him every success. Having worked in removals for over thirty years, Mark brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his new role. We would also like to wish Kevin and Chris well in their new positions within the London division.”
