We are pleased to announce that we have recently made three senior appointments to our management team.
Mark Setchell has joined EH Smith as Managing Director. Mark brings a wealth of strategic and merchanting experience, including 19 years within the Saint-Gobain group – most recently as Commercial Director at Gibbs & Dandy. Mark replaces Phil Yates who retired in June after over 20 years at EH Smith.
Ian Grainger comes in as the new Head of Finance. With many years’ experience in senior accountant roles in the construction and insurance sectors, Ian is ideally placed to lead the EH Smith finance team in the unprecedented economic landscape.
Adele Chambers has been promoted to the position of HR Director. For the past 10 years Adele has held the role of HR Manager at EH Smith. Adele replaces Mark Faulkner who is retiring after over 30 years in the organisation.
Our Chairman, John Parker, commented “We welcome Mark and Ian as newcomers into our business and I’m grateful for the experience they bring. While we find ourselves in challenging and uncharted waters, I’m very pleased with the fresh focus these two roles and Adele’s promotion bring to our management team. We have exciting plans to develop the business as we approach our centenary in 2022 and these key appointments will play a pivotal role in shaping our future.
