TFI Group has appointed two new company directors as the agency starts “a new chapter” following the death of founder Peter Franks last year.

Rob Roffey has become director and Sanjay Patel has been made chief executive officer at the agency.

Roffey said: “While Peter will always be remembered with deep affection, it is now time for the agency to move forward and with a highly motivated team, buoyed by some significant recent new business wins, everyone is excited about writing a new and successful chapter in TFI’s long 34 year history.

“It was quite an unsettling time with Peter’s passing, but we’re now through that part and we’re ready to start writing the next chapter. It’s a very exciting time for the agency.”

Roffey added that the business structure has been simplified to focus on the retention of key accounts and penetrate new sectors with an increasingly diverse portfolio of event related solutions.  

He said: “The business wasn’t as simple as it could have been in its structure, so we’ve given clarity to our offer, and we’re now in a position where 2017 is already looking very healthy. We’ve won a couple of large contracts, which stands us in very good stead.”
