Management restructure at Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes

Bernard Hunter Mobile CranesEdinburgh-based rental company Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes has promoted Mark Rafferty to managing director.

Formerly employed as contracts director, Mr Rafferty has worked with the Gilmerton company since 2003 and succeeds his father Jim Rafferty who has now moved into the role of chairman of both the crane company and Bernard Hunter metal recycling and property development.

The restructure will see Mark steering day-to-day operations, while his father will take “more of a back seat” but continue playing a part in major decision making.

A statement from the company said: “The management restructuring will ensure a ‘business as usual’ approach for the firm with Mark Rafferty steering day to day operations, whilst Jim Rafferty will take more of a back seat but continue his involvement with major decision making for Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes, in addition to his involvement with metal recycling and property development for Bernard Hunter. The former connection with metals stretches back to the company’s founding in 1946 at Seafield, Edinburgh.”

Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes runs a fleet of 18 mobile cranes, with capacities up to 500 tonnes and also includes three mobile tower cranes.
