Duncan Martin, managing director of STIGA UK Limited, has announced that after 44 years in the industry he is taking time out in order to develop his other interests.

Georg Metz, STIGA Chairman and Group CEO, has announced that the role of managing director of STIGA in the UK will pass into the capable hands of Gary Whitney whose experience within the industry and at STIGA Limited will ensure continuity and a seamless senior management transition. 

Gary will be supported by the team in Plymouth as he continues to develop the STIGA business.

 "I can honestly say I’ve had fabulous time during my tenure with this company and the industry as a whole. I’ve been lucky enough to work with great colleagues and develop our business. The current team at STIGA Limited are in my opinion the best team I have had the pleasure to work with. I have also met numerous great customers many of whom have become good friends.

"As I shift my focus onto new ventures, I wish Gary, as well as the staff and customers of STIGA Limited, continued success in the future.”

Georg Metz said, “I would like to acknowledge the tremendous contribution that Duncan has made to our UK business, guiding the company over many years of continuous growth. He has an enviable reputation and success record which is something we know he is justifiably extremely proud of.”
