Pat Skelly takes over at Prohire

Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, UK: Pat Skelly is the new chief executive of vehicle provider Prohire.

Skelly was previously managing director of Petit Forestier’s UK business and takes over from Dave Barlow on 14 October.

Skelly sold his own business, Rockfield, to Petit Forestier in 2006, after which he led Petit Forestier’s business in the UK.

Barlow said: “I am truly delighted that Pat will be taking the lead at Prohire. His expertise, customer and technical focus, drive and enthusiasm when combined with the skills of the existing Prohire management team will ensure the business continues to develop and deliver on its goals.”

Skelly said: “Prohire is well placed to achieve growth. It is an ambitious and well-balanced company with a great team. I have to say I was delighted to be approached by Prohire to head up the next exciting chapter in its story. The UK contract hire market is a very congested place. It will be my mission to ensure Prohire stands out for values that still mean something in today’s highly competitive world.”
