Nye will be replaced by Jo Carrasco who is currently head of business development at Stonebridge Group. Carrasco has been with the network for 10 years herself and will begin her new role in January 2018.
Stonebridge Group managing director Richard Adams thanked Nye for his 13 years of service.
“He has been absolutely integral to our growth and development over that time, and Stonebridge would not be the business it is today without his drive, input and tireless work,” Adams said.
“We are extremely sad to see him go, but in Jo we have an able replacement and it will be business as usual for Stonebridge. That said, everyone at Stonebridge – and I’m sure all Paul’s friends in the industry – would like to wish him all the best for the future and a long and happy retirement.”
Carrasco echoed Adams’ thanks to Nye, saying: “I am delighted to be moving to this new role within the group and am looking forward to tackling the next big challenges we face, while building on the fantastic work Paul has done since he’s been with Stonebridge.”
Nye said it had been a difficult decision but he felt now was the right time to leave the business and enjoy his retirement.
“I have a few months left and will be spending that time liaising with colleagues and putting in place some exciting plans for the future of Stonebridge,” he said.
“I would like to thank everyone who I’ve worked with at Stonebridge, particularly Richard, for their support, dedication, hard work and friendship – it’s been a wonderful journey and to see the growth of the business over that time period has been incredible.
“I would also like to thank all industry colleagues and businesses that I’ve dealt with over the last 13 years or so – we’ve done some great things together, often in very difficult times, and I can’t speak highly enough of you. I look forward to catching up with you all before I leave Stonebridge at the end of the year,” he added.
