Polyco (Group) Limited have appointed Gavin O’Reilly to the position of Non- Executive Chairman. Prior to taking this non-executive position, Gavin held a number of senior executive roles including Group Chief Executive Officer of Independent News and Media and Chairman of APN News and Media in Australia as well as chairing the World Association of News Publishers. Gavin combined this successful executive career with a number of non-executive

directorships in companies including a software business, investment company and a hotel resort.

Mark Holdaway, Managing Director of Polyco, said: “The board are delighted that Gavin has chosen Polyco as his first Non- Executive Chairman’s role and are looking forward to the experience and guidance that Gavin will bring to the company as it accelerates its growth plans in both the domestic UK and Irish

markets as well as seeking more opportunities for international expansion.”

Gavin added: “I’m looking forward to the opportunity in a non-executive capacity to work alongside the existing management team to guide them on their ambitious plans for growth. The company is well placed with market leading glove brands in the consumer and professional sector to expand rapidly over the next three years.”


Organisers of The Emergency Services Show 2013 have expanded the exhibition area at the NEC in order to accommodate increased demand from exhibitors. Now in its eighth year, the event will take

place in Halls 17 and 18 and accompanying outdoor area at the NEC in September.

Earlier this year it was announced that the show was moving to the NEC to offer improved facilities and larger indoor and outdoor exhibition

space. Such has been the demand that the floor plan has now been further expanded to offer additional space within Hall 18.

“We have more companies and organisations wanting to exhibit at The Emergency

Services Show and many of them also want to take larger stands, helping to make the 2013 event our biggest to date,” said David Brown, Event Director for The Emergency Services Show. “The bigger show and improved facilities will also help us to build further on the 18% increase in visitor numbers we saw last year.”

The growing Emergency Services Show is focused on promoting interoperability and is unique in offering visitors from all blue and amber light services with valuable opportunities to learn, network and progress their career development. Entry gives visitors of all ranks access to over 300 exhibiting companies and organisations, as well as workshops, seminars, and live rescue demonstrations. 09
