THE new owner of one of Europe’s biggest offshore marine employment agencies has expansion plans for the business.
Chief executive officer Nick Saul, pictured, has bought Bachmann HR from chairman Peter Bachmann to pursue plans he has to take the business forward.
He said that it was a developing and successful business with opportunities for global growth.
Mr Saul, who joined the company in 2008, said the business had bucked the global economic downturn in recent years.
‘The last three years we have seen phenomenal growth, even through the recession, with 20% growth in turnover for each of the past three years,’ he said.
‘In the past five years we have gone from 18 staff to 44 in Guernsey. It’s all quite amazing as we’ve never really marketed the business – people have found us.
‘We’ve also realised that we are probably the biggest payroll bureau in the islands and we have just two Channel Island clients.’
