Heidelberg UK appoints new MD

Ryan Miles

RYAN Miles has been appointed the new managing director of Heidelberg UK and head of Cluster Northern Europe, which includes the UK, South Africa, Sweden and Denmark.

Ryan, who is currently MD of South Africa, will relocate to the UK and is due to take up the post at the beginning of April. He succeeds Gerard Heanue, who is stepping down after 23 years with the business in a variety of roles.

“Heidelberg UK must continue to develop and innovate in order to provide the best value to its customers, whose needs are always evolving,” Ryan said. “Our service and support must remain world class and we need to ensure customers can take maximum advantage of the digitised world and the advanced technology that Heidelberg can offer.”

Gerard Heanue commented, “Ryan and I have worked together for five years and I have seen the great job he has done in revitalising the organisation there so I had no hesitation in proposing him to the Heidelberg board for the UK role. He is a good team player, very bright and future-focused. He is the right man to take the organisation forward.”
