Anders Ek takes over as managing director in addition to his existing responsibilities as UK chairman from 23rd July. Neil Emsley has left the company.
“With the rapid development of new business in the past four months, particularly with our latest new customer addition, the Travis Perkins Group, a strengthened link between our UK business and Swedish sawmill production is needed,” said Anders Ek.
Mr Ek, who has been chairman of SCA Timber Supply UK since 2003, added:
“I have been given responsibility for the role during this transitional phase, thus bringing SCA Timber Supply Sweden and SCA Timber Supply UK closer together.”
Mr Ek is also president of SCA Timber Supply internationally, heading the company’s activities in the Scandinavian, French and British markets.
Simon Thurman has been appointed Key Account Manager for SCA Timber Supply’s new business with Wickes. John Buffel has been appointed BM National Sales Manager, operating in future from SCA’s Welshpool base. Both appointments are with immediate effect. Other appointments amongst SCA’s senior management team will be announced in the coming weeks.
