Joan Amigó, Chief Executive Officer of Applus+, says: “I am delighted Julián has accepted this role which I have no doubt he will succeed in. He is ideally qualified to support me and the Board to continue to execute our strategy of unlocking the value that we see in the business and communicating this to the investment community. He is a good fit, a hands-on manager that gets things done, and has the experience of working in leadership roles in large organisations and managing change. I am confident he will manage the finances expertly and bring fresh ideas to strengthen and profitably grow the business.”
