A year later he switched to A-Plant, where he was operations manager, leaving in 2007 to join Travis Perkins as regional manager – hire. After seven and a half years in the role he moved to his role at Selco.
Gibbons said: “Having used Point of Rental’s software in a number of previous positions, and having dealt with the company as a customer, it’s always been clear to me that their commitment to their products and their customers was second to none. All through the interview process, I felt as though I was already part of a great team. I have known Mark Goodrum for many years and I’m privileged to be given the opportunity to use my many years’ experience within the hire industry to help influence the development going forward.”
Managing director Mark Goodrum added: “We’re excited to be able to add someone of Simon’s calibre and with his in depth industry knowledge. We’re committed to providing hire expertise along with our software, and Simon brings knowledge of, and experience with, nearly every aspect of running a hire business.”
