Barry McCurdy has taken over the role of Managing Director at Medical Air Technology. His promotion comes after Steve Stott decided to step back a little from day-to-day activities after 13 years at the helm, undertaking a role as Chairman.
Barry has been with Medical Air for eight years. As Finance Director, he worked closely with Steve following the management buy-out in 2013, which Steve led, playing a key role in taking the company forward to the market-leader it is today. As Steve’s right hand man, Barry has a comprehensive knowledge of the business and the market, bringing exceptional shrewdness, acumen, and an absolute commitment to the company to his new position.
As part of the changes at Medical Air, Adrian Parkin and Will Evans have been promoted to Contracts Director and Business Development Director. They are part of the highly experienced senior management team, well known throughout the industry, that will be working closely with Barry as the company enters the latest phase in its growth. They join Andy Smith (Technical Director) and Lee Manfred (Operations Director MAT FM).
As he looks forward to a very busy 2022, Barry says: "Firstly, I want to thank Steve for asking me to take the role of Managing Director. I am incredibly proud of the trust he has placed in me. Since buying the company, Steve has taken it forward to the success it is today, and I stand in awe of the commitment and passion he brings to everything he does. I shall be continuing his good work, as well as bringing in many of my own ideas and those of the leadership team as we take the company forward in an increasingly competitive market."
