New member of the board

Mark Johnston is taking on the role of Glazerite’s group finance director, replacing Mike Johnson who aims to retire during the course of 2021.

Mark joins the trade fabricator from his role as finance and commercial director at Sovereign Group.

Group managing director Robert Brearley said: “Mark has extensive commercial and financial experience across a range of sectors, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the business. He will work closely with Mike for a transitional period, so we have a seamless handover before Mike enjoys his well-earned retirement.”

Alongside founders John Hewitt and Jason Thompson, Mike has played an instrumental role in evolving Glazerite into a leading trade fabricator, with four manufacturing divisions and a £29 million turnover.

Mark said: “I’m delighted to be joining Glazerite. It’s a forward-thinking organisation with exciting plans for growth, and I’m really looking forward to playing my part in further enhancing its position as a market leader.”
