Since taking over the reins at IMC in August 2013, I have rebuilt the management team into a winning combination. In my opinion a good mix of professionalism, dedication, resourcefulness and most importantly a good deal of humour.

In turn, the management team have rebuilt their teams, not only to reflect the heritage of IMC over the last 100 years; but also to project what we stand for and where we want to take the company in the future.

As we are continually evolving as a business, I believe the company has adapted well to the challenges offered by our current market and are well placed for the challenges of the future.
