Bethan Customs Consultancy has promoted specialist Customs Consultant, Elaine Lownds, to the newly created position of Customs Manager. The role will see Elaine lead Bethan’s team of Customs Consultants in line with the firm’s business practice and ethos.
Elaine’s promotion and the re-structuring of the team opens up a myriad of opportunities for Bethan to expand their suite of customs related service offerings for clients, both in scale and geography.
The firm’s director and founder, Nicola Alexander, said: “Elaine has brought so much value to the company since joining in March last year, and this well-deserved promotion reflects her hard work, loyalty and commitment. Not only is she a wealth of knowledge and experience in all matters customs, but she is also well-liked and respected by colleagues and clients alike. I look forward to working with Elaine in her new role, and am confident she will do a fantastic job.”
Elaine added: “I’m thrilled to step into this new position at what is an exciting time for Bethan, and an interesting time for the UK as a whole. Our impending exit from the Union Customs Code (UCC) and the European Union (EU) will have major implications for businesses which import and export, and I look forward to working with our clients and continuing to support them during this period of unprecedented change.”
