Peter Eglinton appointed new Group MD

In response to a sustained period of business growth, CET is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Eglinton as Group Managing Director.

Peter has more than a decade’s experience of senior management roles within large volume, multi-site organisations across the logistics, professional services and waste management industries.

In this new role, Peter will be responsible for the future development of the CET Group, delivering on a strategy of continued growth and innovation. Central to this strategy will be the nurturing of long-term relationships with key customers and a strengthening of the group’s current software portfolio.

Over the past two years, CET has pioneered the development of innovative software tools that are transforming the way the insurance and construction industries communicate; including CETi® (the online materials testing app) and SIMPLIFi (the home emergency job management app).

Peter’s appointment follows a period of sustained growth for the CET Group. In the past year, CET has acquired two other businesses: Omega Calibration and Construction Testing Solutions; expanding its geographical coverage and broadening the service offered to customers.

Peter explained: “CET has enjoyed exceptional growth and expansion over the past year. Not only through recent acquisitions and staff appointments, but through the launch of new products; so it’s a really exciting time to be joining the organisation.

“CET is carving out its position as a leader in software applications across the construction and insurance sectors and we’re planning to develop this technology further and explore opportunities to enhance CET’s services offer for the benefit of all customers.”

Bob Blunden, CEO of CET, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Peter to the team and know his expertise and knowledge will be a real asset to CET. During the recruitment process, we were keen to find someone who embodied CET’s culture and who could fulfil our mantra of ‘Giving Our All’ – Peter ticked all the boxes. His experience across a variety of sectors will also enable him to provide fresh ideas and impetus to feed into our growth plan moving forward.”
