18th March 2019, London

We are pleased to announce that Karl Eastwood has been appointed Chief Operating Officer of Global Lingo. This internal promotion was a result of a company restructure that occurred at the beginning of this year, sparked by CEO Mark William’s departure at the end of 2018.

Andrew Trotter, Chairman of Global Lingo comments: “Promoting Karl to COO was a natural progression for someone who has been an increasingly invaluable and impressive member of the Senior Management team. In his first few months in the position he has already proven himself to be an excellent choice and we are excited for what he will be able to achieve for Global Lingo in the future.”

Prior to his appointment to COO, Karl held the position of Group Finance and Operations Director at Global Lingo. As a qualified Accountant, his financial acumen has greatly benefitted the company over the past years and is set to put him in good stead for his new position.

2018 was a very successful year for Global Lingo, seeing the company continue with record organic growth in the European and American markets. In 2019 Global Lingo looks to continue this positive trend with the addition of new global talent, and continued investment in technology.

Karl Eastwood, COO, Global Lingo comments: “I have been with Global Lingo since 2011, working in a variety of finance related roles. As the opportunity to step up presented itself at the beginning of this year, I was honoured to accept the role of Chief Operating Officer. I am looking forward to leading Global Lingo to new record heights and into new global regions.”
