Birmingham’s CDI Group, the UK’s award-winning voice and data cabling specialists, has appointed Paul Bevington as Director of Operations.

Paul has been with CDI Group for over 15 years, and has worked his way up, starting off as an apprentice in 2002.  More recently he had taken on the role of Managing Director of CDI Group’s Telecom division (CDI Comms) and has now been promoted to Group Operations Director as part of a corporate reshaping exercise.

Paul is determined to continue to grow the business apace:  “I am focused on maintaining our quality control and customer service experience, and I will be concentrating on our people, with a number of training programmes for our engineers and project managers.

“Once these are in place, my aim is to build organic growth with a broad range of customers, by offering depth and breadth – both new services and products”.

Paul is supported by Managing Director, Chris Arkwell, who founded the business in 1987.  Chris said: “Paul joined the business as a newly trained engineer, 15 years later, he knows the business inside-out and is the perfect choice as Operations Director.  I know he will move the business forward in new and exciting directions”

Paul said: “I am enjoying working alongside an established team of managers and directors, all of whom I have known for many years.
