Cornwall Glass has appointed Steven Marques as sales manager.
Joining the company from Saint Gobain Glassolutions with extensive experience, including the automotive glass sector, Steven assumes responsibility for customer accounts from Bristol and along the M4 corridor.
“I started out in glass working for a family member in South Africa, so I have seen the industry up from very basic glass processing on the factory floor, through to senior and management roles,” Steven said.
“Cornwall Glass is a very progressive and well-structured company with a great culture, it’s expanding its interests and has massive potential for growth, so it’s a very exciting time to be joining the business.”
Prior to moving to the UK in 2016, Steven was general manager for Glass Guru in Cape Town, a high-end manufacturer and processor of frameless glass doors and balustrades. Prior to this he worked as regional manager for USG Auto Glass and before that in a series of management roles within leading processing businesses and glass wholesalers in Johannesburg.
Mark Norcliffe, director at Cornwall Glass, said: “[Steven] knows the glass processing business up from the grass roots, which gives him a great technical understanding and is something which I am certain will be an asset to Cornwall Glass and its customers.”
