One of the founders of corporate clothing supplier, Incorporatewear, has taken over at the helm of the expanding company.

Mike Tozer, who started the Coleshill-based business 16 years ago with prominent designer Jeff Banks and others, has been appointed interim general manager.

Mr Tozer takes over from Chris Wood, who has moved to a new management position in a training business.

Incorporatewear has been growing rapidly since the economic upturn and has recently won major new contracts to provide uniforms for Virgin Atlantic Airways and Marks & Spencer.

Last year, it was acquired by the Australian publicly-listed corporation Pacific Brands, a move that saw both Mr Tozer and Mr Banks appointed to an advisory board to co-ordinate management between Australia and the UK.

Mr Tozer said: “With Chris moving on to a new challenge, it makes sense for me to step in to ensure continuity and to build on our stable foundations. Incorporatewear is a great success story and a major player in its sector in the UK.

“A significant factor in our success is the ethos that comes from Jeff’s attention to detail. That and his no-nonsense approach to business resonate throughout the company, and we intend for that to continue.”
