The company has announced an acquisition and a significant stock purchase in just the last few weeks and the momentum behind their growth continues apace with these new appointments. Jane McEntee has been appointed to operations director and Nick Wheeler is promoted to sales director.

Andrew Powell, Trident’s managing director, said: “We are delighted to announce these two appointments, strengthening our management team as we deliver our ambitious plans for the future. Both Jane and Nick are already valued and highly experienced members of our team and have earned their promotions through hard work, dedication and, crucially, by providing outstanding service to our customers.”
