After four years at the helm of Sunbelt Rentals UK & Ireland, Andy Wright is to step down as CEO

Current COO Phil Parker will take over the role from 1 May 2024.

Phil joined Sunbelt Rentals in 2016 and held executive roles in finance, business development, and most recently operations. 

Brendan Horgan, Group Chief Executive Officer at Sunbelt Rentals, said “I would like to personally thank Andy Wright for his collaboration and transformative leadership. Sunbelt Rentals is a better business today as a direct result of his ambition and efforts.”

Phil added: “Under Andy’s strategic leadership and guidance, Sunbelt Rentals has become the largest rental provider in the UK market and achieved remarkable growth and success. Moving forward, I am honoured and motivated to build on this legacy and drive the growth of our business through our next five-year strategic growth plan – Sunbelt 4.0.”
