New appointment: Ian Mitchell – Operations Director

We are pleased to announce the promotion of Ian Mitchell to the role of Operations Director.

Ian has been in the access industry since 1999, beginning his career erecting aluminium towers, before moving into office and management roles, joining Star Platforms in September 2015.

Managing Director Steve Simmons commented “Ian has a wealth of experience gained through his previous roles and Star has benefited massively from his involvement this past year, including working hard to achieve FORS Silver accreditation.

“Ian holds a CPC in transport management and whilst initially focusing on transport, H&S and other areas of compliance, his involvement and influence within the business continues to grow and it was only right to officially promote him to a member of our board.”

Ian added “I jumped at the opportunity to re-join many of my former colleagues and the management team at Star Platforms last year. Star was launched in October 2014 and already has 3 depots in Bedfordshire, Kent and Leicestershire with a combined fleet of 660 machines. We also serve the UK through our membership of The Access Alliance.

“It is very exciting to be a part of such a growing business, and one that always has the customer at the forefront of everything we do.”
