New general manager

Ikon Aluminium Systems has promoted operations manager Kim Ellis to the role of general manager.

Kim joined the business five years ago and, in that time, has gained valuable insight working in a number of roles, giving her a “unique perspective” on the manufacturer’s procurement, planning, production, and quality control procedures, the company said.

In her new role, Kim will draw on her experience as a conduit between shopfloor, office and customer base. She will oversee daily business activities, manage the team, improve overall business functions and implement strategic development.

John Park-Davies, managing director of Ikon, said: “Kim is a terrific member of the Ikon family, she has a depth of knowledge and understanding of the business that’s second to none. As GM, Kim will take on the day-to-day responsibilities of Ikon and support me in our ambitious development plans.”
