We are pleased to announce that Orthoplastics has recently appointed a new General Manager, Danny Rhodes. Danny joined the team in January 2023, following an impressive management career beginning with 17 years at Rolls Royce.
Danny began working for Rolls Royce after securing an apprenticeship upon leaving school and then worked his way towards his first management role in 2015. Prior to joining Orthoplastics, Danny was the Head of Manufacturing for an engineering company specialising in the aerospace and power markets.
Bringing the skill set he has built up over his career, Danny’s role as General Manager at Orthoplastics is to oversee operations and help coach other managers within the company.
Speaking on the role, Danny says: “Orthoplastics is already a strong business with excellent market penetration, but my aim is to help the business go from strength to strength by enhancing the management team.”
Having worked in both a blue chip company and an SME, Danny has an exceptional understanding of how both types of companies operate and how the strategies can be blended and carried forward at Orthoplastics to secure its growth and resilience, now and in the future.
Danny hopes to bring in elements from his MBA course to help him implement strategic planning such as digitisation and project planning to help facilitate business growth and the transition to a larger company.
When not working, father of two Danny enjoys spending time with his wife and young family. Whether that be taking the family dog on a long walk or enjoying a well-earned weekend break in their caravan.
We’d like to take this opportunity to welcome Danny to the team and we look forward to an exciting future of working together to grow and further enhance Orthoplastics.
