York-based Burton Roofing Group has promoted Ian Leigh as the firm’s new managing director.
Formerly the company’s chief operating officer, Ian believes that while there are challenges to navigate in the wider
economy, the future of the business looks bright.
Ian said: “Without a shadow of a doubt we operate in uncertain times, and the threat of a recession seems not too far away according to the media. While we need to pay attention to what’s happening in the marketplace, companies like ours will be successful by looking to innovate and continue to deliver a service underpinned by expert knowledge that will help our customers enhance their businesses too.”
Growth is certainly on the agenda for the Burton Roofing Group, which trades under the Burton Roofing Merchants, Rinus Roofing Supplies and Discount Roofing and Building Supplies brands. It currently operates 38 branches across the UK and employs 450 people, and as part of the multinational Cupa Group, it has unrivalled access to new roofing products and services.
Ian added: “We’re firm believers that our growth is attributed to helping our customers’ businesses flourish. We need to help them provide the best roofing solutions available, and in addition, we’re very fortunate to have great people in the business that live and breathe that mantra.”
“We have a dedicated team to make our business one of the leaders in its field.”
