UK lifting and rigging equipment supplier Rope and Sling Specialists (RSS) has promoted Tony Teeder to regional account director.
Teeder joined RSS in 2016 as depot manager of the company’s new facility in Haynes. After two and a half years in the position he had a short spell as major accounts manager before becoming regional manager for the midlands, London and the south.
He began his career in 1997 as a section supervisor with Pressurecast Products, moving to Speedy Services six years later as a senior fitter and becoming a test inspection repair engineer in 2007. In 2011 he joined the GAP group as a lifting engineer and was promoted to general manager a year later, a role he held until leaving for RSS in 2016.
RSS managing director Steve Hutin, said: “Tony’s performance and commitment has been exemplary over the last five years, and he has taken our business in London to another level. He takes responsibility and full accountability, which gives him the DNA that is consistent with our other directors. We’re now looking to Tony to continue to build on what he has achieved in London in the midlands and develop relationships further with major project decision makers.”
Teeder added: “Actually, me and Steve have talked about this for some time now and with the contract gains we continue to make, we feel that the timing is right. The promotion will enable me to get into the hierarchy of the major projects and companies to demonstrate exactly what we can do, and offer as a business, while still overseeing London and the south as a region. Between my teams and depots in London, we have managed to expand in terms of customers and employees in both locations. We have continued on a gazelle growth curve even mid pandemic.”
