On his new role, Andy commented: ‘I am extremely honoured to be chosen for this position. My 21 years with Milbank have not just given me a practical insight in to the business; they have shown me how deeply the Milbank family thinks about the welfare of its staff and the long-term future of the company. I would like to continue on the framework that the Milbank family started, and that Sean has carried on from his father; to deliver excellence and reinforce stability and security for the future.’
Former Managing Director Sean Milbank, who will take on the role of Chairman of Milbank, said ‘I am proud to say that Milbank has been successful in achieving its strategy over the past two years, maintaining staffing levels despite exceptionally difficult market conditions.
