Md moves down under
Mr Holden explained: "I was asked if I would like to take charge of the Australian operation and this, coupled with the exciting prospect of living 'down under' for a number of years, was a life changing opportunity I just couldn't turn down!"

He added: "I'm pleased to say that I'm leaving the UK company in pretty good shape. Rentals have never been higher and our distribution is continuing to blaze a trail across the UK."

Operations director James Budd will be taking the helm as acting managing director in the UK until a replacement for Mr Holden is found. Mr Holden said: "After seven years with the business, Budd has an intimate knowledge of the running of our UK operation and I immediately recommended him to our US parent for this role. I wish him well."
