Founders Bob and Richard Norris are to step back from the day-to-day management of Mereway Kitchens, paving the way for sales and marketing director Mark Mills (pictured) to become the company’s new managing director.
The Norris brothers will take up the new role of joint chair.
“We have been guiding the Mereway Group since its formation in 1986 and feel the time is now right for us to take a step back from the day-to-day management of the business while still keeping a watchful eye on its progress,” said Bob Norris.
The company says Mills will become managing director supported by an augmented board of directors.
“We will be helping out and advising in any way that is considered helpful by the management team,” Norris said. “The move creates space for a younger generation of management to advance the business with new ideas and fresh thinking. We believe this move will give increased impetus and momentum and will benefit everyone within the organisation. Our ambition remains to develop Mereway Kitchens to take its rightful place as a major force in the kitchen industry”.
