From April 2018, James Stonor begins his new position as Chief Executive Officer for the Stonbury Group, taking a strategic role in the development of the company. This appointment makes way for Ian Mellor, previously Operations Director, to take place as new Managing Director. Ian has also appointed existing QSE Manager, Stephen Brown and Operations Manager, Chris Challands to the retrospective Director roles for greater board representation.
Both Jon Featherstone and Jon Perryman remain in their current positions as Delivery Directors, with the additional appointment of new Contracts Directors, Michael Campling, who has served Stonbury for over 25 years and Vernon Cowan, who Stonbury welcomes back after a 10-year sabbatical at Affinity Water. The new Contract Managers will bring a greater level of quality to ongoing and future delivery schemes.
Ian Mellor comments “I am delighted to be appointed as new MD for Stonbury and will continue to progress James’ vision of a modern, diverse, professional and safe company to work in. I, of course, recognise the importance of a well thought out system, which we will continue to improve upon as an organisation, this means we can continue to attract and retain great people, as, without them, there is no organisation at all.”
