It gives me great pleasure to hand over the day-to-day running of the company to someone who really understands and gets this industry, whose dynamic and strategic approach to business will without doubt help ASP to not only continue to grow, but thrive.”
Benjamin’s promotion will see him taking over the day-to-day running of ASP. The new MD also has plans to "further increase ASP’s foothold in the market while continuing to maintain and improve the company’s outstanding service".

It is an honour to be appointed MD of this great business and together with the brilliant team we have here, I’m excited to develop the company and help drive it forward.”
