Momentous already expanding with three new arrivals

Jun 16, 2014
Last month The Mover featured Paul Evans' purchase of Momentous that took place in March this year. Expansion is already underway with three new influential industry arrivals to the business.

Paul has already been joined in the business by Lawrence McGreal who has worked with Paul in various businesses for over 24 years and was the former Chief Financial Officer for the entire Interdean Group. Before that Lawrence held similar positions at Trans Euro Worldwide and Rentacrate.

Paul said that whilst looking at his LinkedIn profile he noticed that Noel Glavin had taken a short break from the moving & relocation industry. Noel recently left Anglo Pacific after 10 years with the business. Noel said that when Paul approached him, he knew how well respected he was in the industry and his offer to play a part in helping to repair and turn around a well-established FIDI business, represented a challenge he couldn't refuse. “We’d worked together for 14 years at Trans Euro, so I know all too well that Momentous with Paul's leadership can confidently establish itself as a boutique global mover in the UK market.” Noel will be based in London overseeing Momentous operations.

David McWilliam has also joined Momentous to lead the corporate sales side of the business, having also previously worked for Paul Evans for 7 years at Trans Euro. David knew that joining Momentous was a good opportunity at the right time: “It feels like I have come full circle," David said. "Paul was my first boss and I learnt so much during those early, great days at Trans Euro.”

 Having since worked for a variety of prestigious and well known international moving and relocation companies, David was looking for a new challenge and along came Paul Evans and Momentous. David said: “I just can’t wait to get up to full speed and begin increasing Momentous’ corporate business.” David’s language skills of French, Spanish & Italian will be put to very good use as the company expands.

Paul said that he was delighted with the quick expansion of Momentous so far and was looking forward to working with some of his former colleagues. They all join Wendy Smith - International Manager for Momentous who will be moving to the Central London office. Wendy has been with Momentous for 4 years but has been in the moving industry for 27 years having worked previously for Allied Pickfords and Harrow Green.
