Ragged Edge Consulting Ltd - The Edge in Commercial Business Consulting and Specialist Recruitment


9th June 2016

Exciting changes are ahead for Ragged Edge Consulting Limited. Relationships with customers and contacts like you have helped the business go from strength to strength since I founded it in 2000 and many companies and individuals have made use of our specialist recruitment, commercial consulting and project management services, for which I sincerely thank you. Now it is time for Ragged Edge to announce a new development.

At the end of August 2016 I will be retiring as Managing Director. As you can imagine identifying (recruiting!) a successor to take Ragged Edge forward has been a massively important challenge. I’m sure you will be pleased to hear that Justin Atkin, a well-respected member of the Humber shipping, logistics and business community will be taking over the reins here when I retire. 

I am delighted that Justin, currently Head of Commercial, Humber for Associated British Ports (ABP), will be Ragged Edge’s new owner. Very well-regarded in our sector, Justin brings extensive expertise, great new ideas and a well-deserved excellent reputation among both customers and colleagues to his new role as Managing Director. I am looking forward to working closely with Justin to introduce him to our clients and ensure a smooth transition for the business.

In the meantime, I am keen to thank the many people that have worked with Ragged Edge over the years. Your loyalty, friendship, enthusiasm and support are much appreciated and I am confident that they will be extended to Justin and to Ragged Edge as it moves forward. I know that Justin, ably assisted by our recruitment consultant Jane Bayliffe, will continue to provide our clients with the very best of service, taking the business forward and developing our contribution to this vital economic sector.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Mackenzie
