Algeos would like to announce that Jackie Fisher, their CEO for the past five years, is leaving the company but welcomes new Managing Director Max Sheridan.
Jackie joined the team in October 2015 as a Financial Director and rose to CEO in 2016. Her outstanding proficiency in crisis and change management has guided and grown the company through challenging times. Team Algeos wish her the very best in her future endeavours.
“I would like to thank you all for your support, loyalty and commitment,” says Jackie.
“I leave Algeos in a stable and strong position and this makes me incredibly proud. It would not have been possible without each and every one of you.”
Whilst they wish Jackie a great future, they also congratulate Max Sheridan who has been promoted from Commercial Director to Managing Director, effective from 1st January 2022.
Max brings to the role many years of experience managing sales and marketing teams, as well as his extensive knowledge of products and markets.
His vested interest as his own family’s business makes the future development of Algeos his top priority. They are confident that Max will lead the firm into a continued period of sales growth and build on the progress we have made recently.
“I am really excited to lead Algeos and our excellent team into the next phase of our future development,” says Max.
“Being involved in the family business since my teens means that I have worked in almost every role at Algeos so I’m familiar with our business, our customers and our existing markets.
“I know the potential Algeos has and endeavour to help us fulfil it by ensuring we deliver an excellent experience for our existing, and future customers. We are already working on several initiatives to achieve this such as a new website, operational improvements as well as a new leadership and sales structure for 2022.
“The effects of Covid-19, Brexit and disruptions in supply chains have created a challenging two years. However, I am confident that we can drive the business forward together thanks to our supplier partnerships, market-leading product ranges and outstanding team.
“I would also like to thank Jackie Fisher, our outgoing CEO for putting processes and structures in place during her five years at the helm, which enables us to be a future-proof, sustainable business,” he adds.
