The Play Inspection Company are pleased to announce the appointment of Jon Dalton as Managing Director with immediate effect.
Keith Dalton has immensely enjoyed his 30-year career within the play industry and will now step aside to become Chairman & CEO.
“After over 14 years of working together and building the Play Inspection Company into an independent, trusted, and respected service provider, we feel it is now time to look to the longer-term future. I have every confidence that the drive and energy Jon has demonstrated over the years will continue to have a positive impact on the business. I have hugely enjoyed my time in this industry and have worked with so many clients and colleagues, many of whom I am now honoured to also call friends.
As Chairman and CEO, I will still have some involvement in the strategic side of the business, and I plan to retain close links with the RPII where I will remain as Chairman and Technical Director for Outdoor Play. I will also be continuing some work on standards committees; however, I feel it is now time for me to step into semi-retirement and enjoy some quality time with my wife and family.”
“Further to being a joint Director of this company for the past decade, I am delighted to now be appointed as the new Managing Director of the Play Inspection Company. Keith and I have worked incredibly hard over the years to drive this business together into what it has become today, and I am looking forward to continuing to push this business to the next level with the full support of our fantastic team in the future.”
