Robert Brown, Chairman of Metalube Ltd will become Managing Director from March 2014. He will takeover from company founder David Lee, who will remain with the business as a non-executive Director.

Commenting on his new role, Robert Brown says: "This is a very exciting time for Metalube as we are developing new product ranges and expanding into further international markets. It is a privilege to work with David and I’m confident that our handover period will be seamless."

Robert joined Metalube three years ago with two other directors (both from lubricants firm ITW Rocol) as part of a management buy-in. He is the majority shareholder of the business. Previously, Robert was Managing Director of Herbert Brown Ltd, a UK-based family-owned retailer. During his time there he acquired a wealth of experience in corporate finance and business management best practice.

David Lee adds: "It is incredible for me to witness how far Metalube has come from when I started the business 25 years ago. I am delighted to be handing over the baton to such a confident team and I know that in their safe hands Metalube will continue to grow to new heights. And of course, it’s not goodbye, as I will still be involved in my new role."
