John Good Shipping gears up for growth

July 30 - Appointments at Hull, UK-based John Good Group are set to strengthen the business as it seeks to further expand its existing activities and gear up for future growth.

Previous joint managing director, Alan Platt (pictured below), has been promoted to managing director of the John Good group of companies, while the board also sees two new additions.

Seamus Jennings has been named group sales director, while John Garnier has been promoted to group finance director. Significantly, between the three, they have a combined total of almost 50 years' service to the company.

Alan Platt feels these promotions will bring enormous benefits.

He said: "Our origins are in Hull, stretching back over five generations. We are very committed to the city and to the local Humber region. We have a strong desire to further grow and develop regionally as well as nationally and internationally.

"In 2013 we will be 180 years old. These recent internal appointments are particularly significant as it is the first time in the company's history that a member of the Good family has not held an executive role following the devastating and untimely death of Matthew Good last year."

Alan also believes the relatively young ages of the new board members - Seamus is 48, John is 44 and Alan is himself also 42 - demonstrates that the company is in great shape moving forward to build on its recent success and to prepare itself for future growth.
