Alno UK board announcement
Jonathon Wagstaff (left of picture) - previously Alno UK managing director before becoming CEO, has resigned from his position at Alno UK.
Stuart Welburn (right of picture) - previously Alno UK finance director and more recently, Alno Contracts managing director - has been appointed managing director of Alno UK, and will be taking up his post on 1st August 2017. Stuart will also be acting as the Alno UK Board chairman.
Speaking about his resignation, Jonathon says: "After nine years with Alno UK, this was not an impulsive decision and has been my long-term plan for a period of time. I have been closely supporting - and relinquishing duties to - Stuart Welburn for a number of months in order to ensure a seamless leadership transition.
"I will be with Alno UK in a Director capacity until 31st July 2017, and in the business until the end of September 2017. The real assets in any business are the people and whilst I am sad to leave, I am confident that the exceptional management team at Alno UK will take it on to even greater things."
Stuart has a wealth of business experience and is looking forward to securing Alno UK's position as a leading premium kitchen supplier for the future.
"We are still operating business as usual with production in Germany continuing," he says. "The officers appointed by the German courts as part of Alno AG's self-appointed insolvency are making progress towards an Alno AG restructure and we are positive that business will be sustained. I look forward to being a part of Alno UK's future."
