Listers Announce New MD With Exciting Appointment
Listers Central Ltd have announced the exciting appointment of Steve Gardiner to the role of Managing Director. The prominent Stoke-based fabricator is looking to continue its growth in 2019 after what has been a hugely successful year, which included sales figures hitting £1m for the month of August.
Steve has an impressive CV in the industry and brings a wealth of experience to the role. He joined Everest in 1999 as Operations Director and helped grow the company from £80m-£165m in his 12 years there before leaving in 2010.
Interestingly, Steve and Roy Frost, Group CEO, have worked together at various stages of their careers. They first met in 1995 when Steve was appointed Manufacturing Director at ABB Kent Water Meters and Roy was a young Team Leader.
Steve and Roy went their separate ways to pursue solo ventures in 2010 and now, eight years on, they have joined forces once more and the link-up is sure to prove beneficial again.
Steve said: “I am delighted to be joining Listers at such an exciting time of growth, investment and product development, and am looking forward to working with Roy again. The thing that stands out with Listers is their customer relationships and innovative products, and we are looking forward to a fantastic future.”
Roy is also delighted to be rekindling their partnership, and he added: “Steve and Listers are going to be the perfect fit. He has managed and implemented growth throughout his career, is a manufacturing and operations expert, and achieves success through developing people.”
In the last 12 months, Listers has introduced exciting new products and initiatives that have helped take the company to a new level.
