Senior management team strengthened

The Glazerite UK Group has made three new appointments and an internal promotion.

Mark Towers joins Glazerite as Bolton-based north west division general manager/director designate. With more than 25 years’ industry experience, Mark has worked to improve the output of a number of manufacturing operations, ranging from composite doors to glazing.

Taking up the position of group operations manager is Andrew Worroll, who will report directly into group operations director, Ian Lloyd. He has over 20 years’ experience in operations, production and supply chain, and will focus mainly on Glazerite’s Wellingborough sites, in order to free up more of Ian’s time to focus on the group operations strategy.

Finally, Glazerite has also welcomed Mitchell Gooch, who has taken on the role of group technical and processing support manager at the fabricator’s Peterborough site.

Meanwhile, Chris Price is joining the board of directors as group procurement director. Chris will focus on improving the product development programme and procurement process across the group.

Jason Thompson, Glazerite director, said: “2018 was a challenging year for us and the industry as a whole. Despite this, we’ve increased our products and services portfolio, and strengthened our sales and marketing team with specialist expertise in areas like digital marketing. We have been stretched in some areas, which highlighted the need to further strengthen our senior management team.

“Now, with Mark, Andrew and Mitchell in place, we’re in the best possible position to go forward and achieve our plans for growth in 2019 and beyond.”
