The Directors wish to announce the promotion of Michael Cordell to Operations Manager with effect from 1st October 2015. Mike, who has for the last 3 years been the primary driver behind the success of our technical, quality and safety endeavours, has recently extended his role to include a mentoring and advice role for Production and Engineering managers and associated personnel.
Mike will now take on the overall responsibility for the organisation and safety of all onsite operations of both Glassbond and Moulding Compounds, freeing Managing Director Philip Randell to focus on sales development and Company strategy.
Following the promotion of Mike Cordell and the completion of a strategic review of current resources and personnel requirements. A number of additional personnel promotions and additions have been implemented, designed to enhance both our Managerial, Quality and Engineering resources.
Wayne Duffy has joined the company to become part of our Engineering Department. While Adrian Sanders has been appointed to the Laboratory Department. Alison King joined as Accounts Manager in December 2015, quickly followed by the arrival in February 2016 of Wendy Cordell as Accounts Clerk. We would also like to confirm the appointment of Claire Lukeman to the position of Purchasing Clerk as of Monday 11th April 2016.
The Directors wish to thank Norman Georgeson who is retiring in October for the contribution he has made to our success over the last 13 years. Norman will however be remaining with us in a reduced capacity to oversee our engineering improvement projects. Best wishes also to Betty and Catrina who both recently retired from our Accounts Department.
The Directors welcome all those newly appointed personnel and would like to thank those persons who have recently retired well in their future endeavours. For Norman, Betty and Catrina who between them had over 45 years of employment at Glassbond, I am sure their presence will be particularly missed.
