Management shakeup at equipment firm Asteral

Medical equipment provider Asteral has seen both its managing director and a director leave the company in the past few days.

Managing director David Rolfe and director John Muolo have left the company and their positions will be filled by Mike Dix and Sean Williams respectively.

Dix will move from Asteral’s parent company, Brook Henderson Group, to take on the position of managing director while Sean Williams, also at the parent company, will take on the role of business development director.

A spokesman for the company said: “Brook Henderson Group wants to move the organisation forward by continuing growth and maintaining Asteral’s extremely high quality of service. The new appointments bring significantly greater business experience to ensure Asteral achieves those objectives.”

Asteral has recently taken part in a massive equipment upgrade as a part of its managed equipment services agreement with University Hospitals Leicester.
