“He will also drive business development across the region on the back of our highly successful expansion into the Americas.”

“After spending a few weeks of induction with the Sword Apak teams in the UK and UAE in October, I have a clear understanding of how the business really ticks,” said Trevor Barr, “Sword Apak’s global growth, its internal transformation program and its best of class WFS floorplan software makes joining Sword Apak an easy decision.”
