HighwaysIndustry.Com | Gavin Harrison joins the team as the company grows
HighwaysIndustry.Com are proud to announce that Gavin Harrison has been added to the team.
Gavin, a household name within the highways industry, now brings his extensive skills, experience and expertise to HighwaysIndustry.Com as the company continues to grow and diversify.
After an eight-year stint at Highways Magazine, Gavin now embarks on a new challenge.
He told us:
“I felt the time was right for me to move on. Sometimes I think you just feel like you need a fresh challenge, a re-focus and some new goals in a new environment. I had some great times at Alad publishing and then later, The Hemming Group after Alad was taken over.
“After speaking with the guys at HighwaysIndustry.Com, I felt this was the right move for me. I’m familiar with the industry so it’s not a total unknown, but with the more diverse range of products and services we offer, and the more 21st century offerings – I’m excited to dig into something new and help the company grow further.
“We are diversifying and innovating with our solutions all the time, and we look forward to Gavin being able to spread the word…”
“What’s been achieved in the last 7 years here is really impressive, the company is an established name in the sector in a relatively short space of time, and I think now is the right time for us to go up a level so I’ll be looking to do my bit to make that happen.”
Matt Lambert, HighwaysIndustry.Com General Manager commented:
“This is fantastic for us to be able to welcome Gavin to our company.
“We’ve known Gavin from afar for some years and whenever we’ve met him at industry events whilst working for other companies, he’s always been extremely personable and friendly- so we look forward to working more with him as we know he has the right personal characteristics to excel here.
“Additionally, with his experience, contacts and skillset I have no doubt that he’ll be a roaring success as it’s very clear that he has the professional qualities to match the personal ones.
“As a business, we have done great things over the last 7 years but now is the time for us to really kick on. Gavin’s addition enables us to do just that.”
Company Director Marc Hobbins concluded:
“As HighwaysIndustry.Com grows, and our content creation arm Skyways Media grows with it, we’re going to be adding quality people to what we’re already achieving. Gavin is the first through the door.
“We are diversifying and innovating with our solutions all the time, and we look forward to Gavin being able to spread the word of how all companies across the sector can give their marketing a real boost by working with us at HighwaysIndustry.Com and Skyways Media.”
“For me personally, our platform, and digital marketing in general was perceived as something that ‘wouldn’t last’ back when we started in 2012. So, 7 years on to now be moving forward with somebody as well established within the sector as Gavin on board is a proud moment and showcases to the industry that we are well and truly established as the leading highways news and marketing platform.”
