Mike Molesworth - Chairman

Mike made his mark as Joloda Hydraroll Chairman back in 2019 and since then, he's fallen in love with the customer-focused, can-do attitude of the Joloda team. To Mike, there's nothing better than the simplicity, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of the Modular Rollerbed System – he thinks it's the epitome of the Joloda range.

Michele Dematteis - CEO

Michele, Joloda Hydraroll’s CEO, has been steering the team since 2017. He’s an integral part in the company’s worldwide status, and feels a great sense of pride in knowing that Joloda Hydraroll’s experienced team deliver to all corners of the globe. At heart, Michele’s a lover of good old fashioned engineering – and thinks there’s nothing better than seeing a load being effortlessly glided into a container by hand.

Much like his relationship with Joloda, Brett likes the idea of a solution being perfected over time, to become more durable and more reliable.

As Global Sales Manager, Arjan isn’t averse to globe trotting on behalf of Joloda Hydraroll. In fact, he spends his days supporting sales teams and distributors in all corners of the globe. But to him, the greatest thing in the world is the ability to offer customers true flexibility for their solution – through short delivery times, easy installation and strong concepts.

Bram Satijn - Group Project Manager

As Group Project Manager, Bram's a key player in the international side of Joloda Hydraroll – which happens to be one of his favourite parts of the job. He's a lover of the most technical of solutions, and finds himself constantly impressed with the high tech controls and custom made designs that goes into solutions like the Slip Chain.


Lee Meakin - General Manager Joloda Conveyor Services

Lee is kept busy running Joloda Conveyor Services. The team makes sure conveyors are kept running for some of the biggest parcel services in the UK. His favourite Joloda Hydraroll product is the modular roller bed system for vans - it works in all van types and makes the loading of pallets so much easier. What he like best about working for the business is that every day is a different challenge.


Richard Birks - Group Finance Director

Richard initially joined the Joloda team in 2013 as the external management accountant working for the auditors. He joined the new team properly in 2019, attracted by the fresh sense of purpose he sensed in the company following the BIMBO. The first transaction he was involved with was the acquisition of the service team into Joloda Conveyor Services, closely followed by the investment into Joloda of our PE partners BGF. He loves the breadth of products and applications the company has in its portfolio, and the problem-solving nature of the team at Joloda, but really likes it when a new customer approaches us with a new application, as happened this year with a huge modular homes factory fit-out.
