Directorship appointments expand Thorworld industries leadership team

Thorworld Industries has announced the appointment of three new directors to its board, extending and strengthening its already experienced team

Mark James will take on the role of Director of Administration, Safety and Quality; with Ian Langan being promoted to Director of Engineering and Security; and Roger Smith taking the post of Director of Manufacturing. 

The aim of these appointments is to provide future stability and security for the company, whilst also bringing new opinions and strategies to the table and identifying previously untapped opportunities, all of which will contribute to the continued success of the business.

“This is a very exciting time for Thorworld,” explains Managing Director, John Meale.  “Up until now all major decisions have been made by a senior team of family members, which, while being successful, has at times been limiting in terms of new ideas and approaches.

“By bringing Mark, Ian and Roger, all of whom are experts in their fields, in at board level, we’re equipping the company with an extra level of experience, as well as a new hunger for development and progression.

“By also already having a personal Shareholding investment within the company, we are confident that their focus and drive will subsequently advance the profitability of the company.  With that objective in mind, we feel without doubt that we have chosen the right people for these new directorial roles,” adds John.
