Commenting on his new appointment, Andy Tonkin, Business Development Director, Exyte Hargreaves said ‘“having the rare luxury of being able to decide on what the next chapter of my career should look like, allowed me to set some parameters. Three of which were, to not do what I have always done, to work with likeminded people and to believe wholeheartedly in the direction and ambitions of the business. I truly feel at Exyte Hargreaves I have ticked all 3 boxes. I am looking forward to the journey that lies ahead and being part of a team that will challenge and change the “norms” that so often prevent the customer from getting best value”
