Letter from Brian Murray, Executive Chairman of Boss Design Group
Dear Clients & Partners
Following the unprecedented events of this year, like many of you, we have made significant changes to the senior management structure of Boss Design.
Despite the challenges we’ve faced in 2020, and with vaccines on the horizon – we are feeling very positive about the future and have created a new company structure which we feel will put us in a strong position to continue to provide you with Boss’s renowned levels of quality product and service.
Firstly, as you know – I have always enjoyed and taken pride in being at the forefront of the business. I feel that it is incredibly important, now more than ever, for me to be present and continue to nurture the strong relationships I have with our clients and suppliers. It is for this reason that I have taken the decision to bring in John Atkin as the new Managing Director of Boss Design. An accountant by trade, John has been in the office furniture business for over 20 years and was latterly CEO at Bisley. I believe that having John Atkin with his wealth of experience will put Boss in a stronger position moving forward.
In addition to John, we are also pleased to announce the appointment of Amanda Salt who will join the business as Global A&D Sales Director. Amanda also has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the furniture industry. Although she started her furniture career in manufacturing, Amanda moved into the UK dealer market and 11 years ago jointly created the furniture dealership, Salt and Pegram.
There remains a strong family presence in the business; my son-in-law Jamie has recently been appointed to the Boss Design Board and my daughter Natalie, who works alongside Amanda Salt, has been appointed to the holding company board.
I believe that these appointments will give Boss a strong foundation on which we can continue to build an international business that is forward-thinking and puts our clients’ needs and requirements at the forefront.
I hope to see you all in person very soon.
Boss Design Group
