We are delighted to announce that Zac Hannis has been appointed as our General Manager.

Zac has taken over the day-to-day running of the business as Jane Duquemin moves from Managing Director to a Non Executive role.

Our Chairman Philip Duquemin said of Zac’s appointment, “We are looking ahead to meeting the challenges of the future and building a management structure that will move us forward for the next 20 years.

“The key skills needed to deliver this are determination, planning and organisational management, and an ability to embrace technology as a tool. This is in addition to our traditional values of professional care for our families and, importantly, for each other. Since joining us in 2015 Zac has demonstrated that he has all of these skills, which combined with his natural empathy and compassion make him perfect to take the lead.”

Zac will report to the Board of Directors who are maintaining an active interest in the business and are on hand to support him and all our staff, guiding Beckfords into the future.
