• Steve Horne to leave OT Group as new CEO appointed

        • OT Group has announced that its CEO Steve Horne is to step down from his role by the end of March. 

          Over the past few months and with the support and investment from parent company Paragon, the OT Group has transformed and stabilised its business, taking the opportunity to understand the needs of its customers and become more relevant.  

          Steve said, “in spite of the third national lockdown, we are slowly returning to ‘business as usual’ and this time we are well prepared for the challenge of the next few months and fully committed to providing great service and support for our customers, whatever their needs.   

          “I feel that now is the right time to announce my departure from the group. The senior team at OT Group have a strong and ambitious growth plan for 2021 and with the backing and full commitment of our parent company Paragon, I leave excited and optimistic for the group’s future.

          “I would like to thank all my colleagues who have worked with dedication, passion and determination throughout this challenging time and our customers and suppliers for their continued support.”

          Steve will handover to the new CEO, Andrew Jones. Andrew joins the OT Group from Paragon ID where he has held the position of UK General Manager/CEO since 2017.  In this period, he grew sales by 50 per cent and EBIDTA by 200 per cent and in addition, he transformed the PID business through automation, acquisition and consolidation. Key acquisitions included Thames Card Technologies; Harland Simpson and Burrall Infosmart. Prior to joining Paragon, Andrew spent two years at Grant Thornton Business Consulting and three years at Intelligent Energy as Global Supply Chain Director."
