UK: Refrigeration controls and monitoring company Resource Data Management (RDM), has restructured its operations and announced a number of key appointments to support ambitious plans for global growth.

Following the acquisition of Taiwan manufacturer FYC in 2008 and Indian software company Resorsys (now renamed RDM India) in 2009, and the successful opening of RDM’s US office in 2012, the next major step was to form a new group structure.

The creation of RDM Group sees the appointment of Enrico Mirandola, formerly managing director at Carel UK, to the position of group sales director,  former Marks & Spencer man Bob Arthur to look after RDM’s distribution network and the addition of Mick Padgett, previously national accounts manager at WR Refrigeration, as a senior account manager.

Enrico Mirandola joins as a main board director with responsibility for growing and managing RDM’s sales and marketing teams, covering Europe, the Far and Middle East, Africa and the US. He joins the group board made up of Andrew Chandler, managing director, Gordon McBride, operations director, and Alan McBride, r&d director.

Another major industry figure, Bob Arthur, an independent consultant with Bolyn, has been appointed to manage and expand RDM’s distribution network in Europe, Middle East and Africa. He will source new business and identify new RDM distributors.

Mick Padgett’s role as senior account manager will give him responsibility for major UK clients.

Announcing the new structure, Andrew Chandler said: “I am delighted to announce these changes to our business and these new appointments, which are designed to underpin our next stage of growth. Demand for RDM products is growing rapidly, with many new customers converting to our systems due to their power, ease of use and cost-effectiveness.”

“These new appointments bring unprecedented levels of professionalism, deep knowledge and experience of the marketplace, with a proven track record in their respective fields. This will help us manage the expanding global demand for RDM products, and provide invaluable insights to help us continue to anticipate future needs. It is an exciting time to be in the controls business.”
