Sleight To Lead Off-Highway Research

By Mike Brezonick11 December 2017

As of Jan. 1, 2018, Off-Highway Research’s Senior Consultant Chris Sleight will take on the role of managing director of the business. He succeeds David Phillips, who will remain involved in the company as chairman.

“After 36 years at the head of Off-Highway Research, it is time to hand over the day-to-day aspects of running the business to Chris, who has been working alongside me learning the role for the last two years,” said Phillips. “However, I will remain very much a part of Off-Highway Research’s global team, and I look forward to continuing to develop the relationships I have built in the industry around the world.”

“Chris’s appointment as managing director is part of the succession strategy we put in place following the acquisition of Off-Highway Research in 2015,” said James King, managing director of Off-Highway Research’s parent company, KHL Group. “He has more than 20 years’ experience of international equipment markets and is the ideal person to drive the business forward.

“I am delighted that David has agreed to remain an integral part of the business in his role as chairman, to provide advice and insights, and to continue to promote the Off-Highway Research brand around the world.”

Off-Highway Research is a management consultancy specializing in the research and analysis of international construction and agricultural equipment markets.
