Shawston appoint new Group Managing Director.

The #Shawston group has grown substantially during recent months. In December 2020 Shawston announced the acquisition of a minority shareholding in the UK’s leading fire fabricator R. TINDALL (FABRICATORS) LIMITED. And in early March 2021 the merger of Shawston Holdings Limited with Evalve Ltd. in a share exchange plus cash deal was announced.

Consistent with Shawston’s model for building a fully #sustainable business and to continue growing the group in a controlled way, Shawston are delighted to announce the appointment of John Blackburn to the role of Group Managing Director.

Rob Davenport, CEO and founder owner said “This is a new position for our group, but it is also the culmination of a long and gradual transition of passing-on the baton for the day-to-day operational business to the next generation of Shawston’s leaders.”
