Quotes from key personnel

Miles Hunt, Chairman, The ARM Group:
“ARM has been one of the most successful UK-based firms I’ve seen during the last couple of very challenging years, achieving admirable growth in difficult market conditions. Three things attracted me to the business: the success of the firm, the ambition of the management team, and the belief that I can add value with a plan to complement the businesses’ future growth.
I identify closely with, and have a lot of respect for, ARM’s senior management team - a group of people with whom I feel I have much in common, especially in their desire to deliver excellence internationally.
Mike Gawthorne, MD, The ARM Group:
“ARM has emerged from the recession a strong organisation that is poised to tackle the next stage of its growth. It’s a very exciting time to be at ARM and we’re delighted to welcome Miles Hunt to the Board. Miles has a proven track record in international business relationship development and the knowledge and experience to take ARM to the next level.”
Paul Huntingdon, Founder:
“Miles has a great deal of international experience and is a man whose intelligence and strategic knowledge I hugely admire. I know he will make a great and valuable contribution to the ARM Group. I’m not going anywhere – I remain a majority shareholder of the group with a keen interest in the business and the people within it. My philosophy in growing a business has always been: find someone better than you and hire them!”
