Ruth Napp takes over Simply Hire


Last month, Ruth Napp, the managing director at Simply Hire, became the owner after purchasing the waste management solutions company.

When she was aged just 21, Ruth was headhunted to join Simply Hire by the former owner who spotted her potential at a young age. Ruth began her career with Simply Loos as a hire controller in 2004. 

Simply Hire encompasses two businesses, Simply Loos and Simply Environmental Services. Ruth’s drive to always deliver excellence has seen Simply Hire go from strength to strength, including delivering its biggest month of events to date last summer. 

In addition to this, Ruth has worked hard to secure nationally recognised accreditations such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and FORS Bronze. This success is what Ruth thrives on and it is her can-do attitude that sets Ruth apart from others within the industry.

Ruth is passionate about utilising her experiences to support other young people and women to build a career of their own. When Ruth started at Simply Hire, she was the only female working within the business. Today, 20% of the team are female, something of which Ruth is very proud.

With a passion to always exceed client expectations and remain at the forefront of the industry, Ruth is always exploring ways to grow Simply Hire further. It is this that inspired Ruth to create luxury toilet units that are themed to suit events for Simply Hire’s prestigious client, Windsor Racecourse. 

She said: “After being a part of Simply Hire for 14 years, I am delighted to have now purchased the business and very excited for the future. As a values-led business coupled with a fantastic team working alongside me, I am confident that the business will continue to grow. We have sound strategic plans in place for the future of Simply Hire and will continue to focus on the further growth of the business and our offering.

“The purchase of the business completing is the perfect way to kick off our busy summer season. I look forward to working alongside my team and continuing to deliver our services to a range of prestigious clients and working towards growing every year…watch this space!”
