Commenting on the appointment of Karen to succeed him, Graham said: I am delighted to be handing over my responsibilities to someone of the calibre of Karen, who brings to the MRH business a wealth of industry experience at the highest levels. Her appointment is a real statement of intent by Lone Star that the company is to continue its programme of dynamic growth in the future.
