It was September 2022 when we announced that Synapsys Solutions had become an employee-owned business run through an employee ownership trust (EOT).
The last six months have passed quickly and with the transition to an EOT now complete, the end of March 2023 marks the retirement of Harvey Roft, one of Synapsys Solutions founders and our outgoing Managing Director.
Andy Thorn (Sales and Service Director), joined the company board when our EOT was announced and will now take on the role as our new Managing Director as of 1st April 2023.
Harvey Roft said back in September “By transitioning ownership of the business to its employees Synapsys has secured the future of the business, continuing its values, culture and ethos. I believe the people best able to run and own Synapsys Solutions, are those who work within it, who helped to build it and continue to make it grow”.
In full support of that statement, Andy Thorn is now fully focused on the future of Synapsys Solutions and along with the rest of the team will continue to build on the great foundations which have been set, ready to push onto to greater product innovation, better service to our customers and stable growth of the company.
In support of that business growth, Ryan Needham becomes Sales and Projects Director. Ryan has a history with Synapsys Solutions as well as contracting and is ideally suited to taking on the challenge of maintaining profitable sales growth in the current market.
Everyone at Synapsys Solutions congratulates Harvey on his retirement and we all wish him all the best as he starts his new adventure.
If you have any questions please email us, give us a call or speak with your local sales representative. We look forward to continuing to work with our customers as we take Synapsys Solutions into its new era of ownership and development.
