“I feel really honoured that Allister trusts me with taking the company into the next chapter of our story. I’m very excited about the future for Docherty Group and I’m looking forward to leading the team and building on the respected foundations established by two generations of the Moorcroft family.”

Allister Moorcroft said:  “I have enjoyed every minute of my 33 years at Docherty Group and we are confident that now is the time to be handing over the reins. We are confident that Patrick will provide the leadership to take Docherty forward, working closely with the management team and staff. We have been invited by Patrick to continue to act as Ambassadors for the company and we will always be there to support and advise in the future.”
