Weston Beamor has announced that its current head of CAD Design and 3D Printing, Ed Hole has been promoted to the role of business manager for the bespoke precious metals casting, 3D printing and production division.
Hole has worked at Weston Beamor for more than 14 years, joining the team in 2003 having recently graduated from Loughborough University with a BA (Hons) in Industrial Design and Technology.
Commenting on the promotion, managing director, Andrew Morton, said: “I am really pleased with this promotion. Ed has proved himself to be capable, dependable, innovative and industrious from day one. It’s great that we’re able to reward his hard work and incredible work ethic in this way.
“Ed will bring a new energy, and a new focus to this role. He is a consummate professional and his integrity will stand him in excellent stead in this new role and in his career with Weston Beamor. Ed’s new role will mean that he will have responsibility for continuing to grow this side of the business and he has a great foundation to build on.
“The bespoke side of our business is flourishing, perhaps driven by fashion and consumer appetite for personalisation, perhaps due to the wealth and breadth of experience we have on-site…. Either way, we’re enjoying increased interest and volume, so it’s a really great time and opportunity for Ed to step into this role and work with the senior management team to deliver against our shared vision. We all wish him the very best. We know he’ll do a sterling job.”
Commenting on his promotion Hole said: “It’s a great honour to be appointed as business manager here at Weston Beamor. I’m proud of the team, the work we do and the service we offer to our fantastic customers. I look forward to working closely with Andrew and excited about the future of the business.”
Hole’s new role, which will officially begin from April, will include responsibility for administration, CAD, 3D printing and business development and client liaison.
He is expected to continue to direct manage the CAD and 3D printing teams; however his new role will see him spend more time out on the road, building and developing business in partnership with clients.
