Hope worked in the position since and 2007 and helped guide the company through the economic downturn in 2008-9, ensuring the company was in a better position to benefit from the subsequent improvement in the global economic climate. ‘The controls and planning he has imposed, in his far reaching role which incorporated IT and purchasing among other areas, has been a key factor in building the robust financial position the company now finds itself in,’ the company said in a press release.
