CMO Group has announced the promotion of Callum Tasker to the role of Chief Commercial Officer of CMO and his appointment to the Board.

Callum has nearly 20 years’ experience in the industry, joining CMO in 2010, shortly after its inception, and has successfully carried out various significant roles within the Company. 

He was Sales and Logistics manager for five years to 2015 when he was then promoted to Operations Director. He became Commercial Director in 2019. Prior to joining CMO he spent five years with SIG.

After nearly 40 years in the industry and five years with the Company, Sue Packer, Chief Operating Officer, is retiring at the end of March and will step down from the Board immediately.

Mike Fell, Co-Founder of Key Capital Partners, the company’s largest shareholder, will replace James Excell as Key Capital’s representative on the Board. Fell was part of the original team that invested in CMO. He holds a number of other directorships of investee companies which will bring wide experience to CMO.

Dean Murray, CEO of CMO Group said: "We are delighted that Callum is taking the Chief Commercial Officer post and is joining the Board. The Board will benefit from his industry experience and long-term knowledge of CMO. He has a passion for detail and driving profitable growth.

"Sue has been an instrumental part of the team that has made CMO into the Company it is today. I, personally, will miss her knowledge and experience, but also wish her the happiest of retirements. We could not have a better replacement for Sue in Callum who has worked with and alongside her for the past five years. This will provide a seamless succession.

"We are also delighted that Mike is joining the Board. We will benefit from his broad  experience and counsel, and many thanks to James who has provided invaluable support and advice in his role as non-executive director.”
