Fulton’s team also remains intact with many having worked there for more than 10 years.

Chairman of Bridle Group, Stewart Donald, said: “It’s no mean feat to have been around for 30 years and still have one of the founder directors involved in the business.

Di Girolamo said: “We have pushed back on becoming solely an internet-based transactional business, but have embraced change and this exciting opportunity offers me the investment and support to ensure we remain competitive and efficient”.
