We are delighted to announce the appointment of Sean Taylor (right) and Alan Skipper (left) as Directors of C J Thorne & Co. Ltd. Sean takes on the role of Contracts Director after more than 30 years with the Company, during which time he has earned huge respect from both colleagues and clients, many of whom ask for Sean by name, such is the reputation he has established.
Alan becomes Operations Director after 18 months with the Company, preceded by stints with Plumbridge Contractors, P J Brown Ltd. and 12 years at Clancy Docwra. His experience and contacts in the Utilities Industry have already begun to open doors to new customers as existing clients’ budgets have shrunk due to term contracts coming to an end and the inevitable impact of Covid-19 taking effect.
Jim Fraser takes over as Chairman of the Group, which includes Hobart Paving Company and J P Hunter Surfacing, with Chris Thorne remaining as Managing Director. Each of the Executive Directors will continue to have a role in all aspects of the business as we look to drive forward more collaboration, innovation, efficiency and productivity across the board, embracing new opportunities across all sectors of our business.
