However, I will remain very much a part of Off-Highway Research’s global team, and I look forward to continuing to develop the relationships I have built in the industry around the world.”

With David’s continuing support and advice I look forward to growing this globally respected business and delivering the reliable and accurate industry insights which Off-Highway Research’s clients have come to expect.”

He has more than 20 years’ experience of international equipment markets and is the ideal person to drive the business forward. I am delighted that David has agreed to remain an integral part of the business in his role as Chairman, to provide advice and insights, and to continue to promote the Off-Highway Research brand around the world.”
