Board Changes

Recent board changes have seen Alan Dunsmore being appointed as Chief Executive Officer and Adam Semple as Finance Director, both on a permanent basis, having held those roles on an interim basis since 28 March 2017.

Ian Cochrane remains Chief Operating Officer and will continue to deliver on Severfield’s operational strategic objectives.   

John Dodds will remain in the role of Chairman on a non-executive basis.

All the above Board changes and appointments will be effective from 1 February 2018.

John Dodds, non-executive Chairman, said:

“I would like to pay tribute to Ian Lawson’s tremendous contribution to the Severfield business since his arrival in November 2013. He has been the architect of the Group strategy, setting the target of doubling our underlying pre-tax profits by 31 March 2020. Under his leadership Severfield is well on track to deliver against this important milestone. Ian leaves with our thanks and best wishes.

I would also like to acknowledge the important roles that Alan, Adam and Ian Cochrane have played over the last year and look forward to working with all of them as Severfield continues to deliver on its growth strategy.”
