Ex-student is appointed as new Managing Director

Andrew Thompson, ex-New College Durham business and finance student, has taken the lead as Managing Director at the UK’s leading hirer of portable site accommodation and secure storage containers, Mobile Mini.

Andrew started his career as a warehouse assistant while studying at New College Durham. He achieved a series of moves and promotions and successfully made his way up through store and regional management.

After 20 years in leadership positions in food retail, Andrew made the move into the hire industry around 10 years ago, and initially joined Mobile Mini as its Regional Director for the north before adding overall operations and supply chain management to his remit.

Andrew Thompson has taken the helm at Mobile Mini following four years at the firm, which has 15 branches throughout the UK. As the new Managing Director, Andrew will lead the company’s dedicated team of 420 staff.

Andrew commented:

“I am honoured and humbled to have the opportunity to lead such a fantastic business. Despite being a large, world leading company, Mobile Mini has such an approachable family environment and I’ve been overwhelmed with the positive response from the team. I plan to take every opportunity to guide the business to unprecedented success, because our colleagues deserve it. There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a team evolve and grow and we are on the verge of something very special at Mobile Mini. I’m extremely proud to be part of the team.”
