Mesh ‘ not looking for general manager’

Channel gossip 'completely inaccurate'

Mesh, the London-based system builder, called us today to deny that it was looking for a new general manager. Neither had the company approached former general manager Paul Kinsler, or Luke Ireland, Evesham.com's former marketing manager, to run the business. marketing manager John Hendrick said.

He was responding to channel gossip, reported earlier today in The Register.

"Max Sherasati and Peter Ramiz, are the co-MDs and owners of Mesh. They have been running the company and they are not looking at anyone. We have never spoken to Luke Ireland," Hendrick said.

Mesh currently has a headcount of 200. In January, it opened a new 20,000sqft plant, in Newbridge Scotland. The company is expanding it London production facility, moving to a new 20,000sqft unit at the end of July.

Kinsler left Mesh to start up Taxan's UK PC operation. This was announced in August 2000 but by October Taxan had got cold feet and scrapped the idea. System builders had hinted they wouldn't be buying Taxan monitors if the company started competing with them directly.

Kinsler now runs his own business, PK Media Solutions, and works for VIA, LG Electronics and Evesham amongst others. ®
