Statement from Andy Sutton, recently appointed Chief Executive Officer, International Decorative Surfaces Limited.
|“It is a privilege to be taking on the role of CEO and I am committed to building on the many successes to date and look forward to taking IDS through the next stage of its journey. We have a talented team, enduring and innovative suppliers and valued customers, and I am delighted and humbled to have been chosen to lead the business into the future with the full support of our new owners.
I am delighted to welcome to the board Kevin Riddle as our new Chief Financial Officer, who brings to the business vast experience as a senior financial professional across multiple market sectors including automotive, distribution and logistics. Over the last decade Kevin has worked as CFO for several privately owned and private equity backed high-growth businesses, leading acquisitions and integration processes. We also intend to appoint a Chief Operating Officer to further strengthen the board and I will have more information about that in due course.
As we embrace change, we look forward positively to our next growth chapter with a business driven by a strong and experienced team of people at all levels. What remains enduring in this change is our commitment to our suppliers and customers.”
