TÜV SÜD Product Service has appointed Chris Guy as its new UK Divisional Director. He will take over responsibility from Jean-Louis Evans, who is retiring from TÜV SÜD at the end of October 2017.
Chris Guy joins TÜV SÜD from the Consumer Technology division of UL, a US-based testing and certification company, where he was Regional General Manager with full P&L responsibility for the division across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.
Chris Guy started his career with RFI Global Services, initially in several technical positions, and later expanding his role to more commercial responsibilities after RFI was acquired by UL in 2010. In his time at RFI and UL, he has worked across a wide range of product sectors, including consumer, medical, automotive and energy.
Chris Guy said: “I am really looking forward to continuing the work of Jean-Louis and the team, and growing the Product Service business in the UK. My initial priority will be to get to know the team, their current plans, and to get out and meet key customers. I want to contribute my experience to enable our customers to reap even greater benefits from our services and help TÜV SÜD Product Service to continue its successful development in the future”.
