Tom Ulliot, managing director, is leaving Holmes Halls, Hull, to pursue his other business and leisure activities. His position has been taken over by Charles Barker who joined them on July 5 following the closure of Barkers. Ulliot sold his interest in the company some three years ago and the tannery, which now produces wet-blue only, is owned 30% by John Woodwood of Bradford Hide and Skins; 30% by Paddy Byrne; plus two undisclosed partners with 20% each.
