We’re pleased to announce key changes to our Avonside Group Board line up, positive changes that will help us work towards our business growth plans!

Announcing the changes, our CEO, Eddie Stanton stated: “We are living through some of the most challenging conditions in decades, but having successfully negotiated the initial issues around the COVID-19 crisis, Avonside Group is now clearly focussed upon our future plans for growth.”

He added: “As part of our plans I am delighted to announce a further strengthening of our Board, and to be able to promote some of our most able managers.”

What Are the New Board Changes?

Bringing a wealth of experience and strong contact network to the key role, our current Group Commercial Director, Simon Smith will now take on the responsibility of Group Procurement Director. This will continue his increased focus in this vital area.

Meanwhile, our current Regional Operations Director – Eastern Region, Chris Firth will transfer to the role of Group Commercial Director, in another key appointment that is part of the Group’s long-term strategy to implement our client-facing approach.

An additional development sees Adam Pearson join the Board to take up the job of Regional Operations Director – Western Region. After joining Avonside Group four years ago as part of our SM Roofing acquisition, Adam has consistently delivered outstanding job performance and is a strong supporter of innovative industry standards and delivery.

Our Executive Chairman, Tony Burke, concluded: “These changes to our Board demonstrate our absolute commitment to the ongoing development of our Group, and also shows the depth of talent we have in all areas of our business.”

We’d like to wish Simon, Chris and Adam the best fo luck in their new roles!
