Middlesbrough-based F Jones Cleveland has appointed Craig Fyall as managing director as its new managing director.
The specialist supplier of luxury worksurfaces in natural stone, sintered stone, granite and quartz says the appointment is part of a restructuring of the senior management team as the company sets its sights on growth and expansion in the kitchen, bathroom and contract markets.
Founded in 1984 by Fred Jones, the company, which is situated at Riverside Park Road, has built a solid reputation for supplying luxury marbles and granites, sintered stone and quartz to customers nationwide through its close partnerships with leading brands Antolini and Cosentino.
Fyall joined the company as sales director in April 2018 from his previous role as sales director for the specialist building products group, Building Product Design.
He will work closely with Ian Jones, who moves from the post of managing director to company chairman.
Fyall said: “F Jones is about to embark on a significant growth and investment strategy that will mark an exciting new chapter in the company’s 35-year heritage of providing luxury worksurfaces.
“I am proud to have been given this responsibility and look forward to the opportunities ahead.
“We will be diversifying the company’s product and service offer across the kitchen, bathroom and contract sectors, ensuring our customer base grows and benefits from what we have to offer.”
Fred Jones is stepping down from the role as chairman but will continue as the director responsible for the financial oversight of the group.
Ian Jones said: “As a family-owned concern we have been delighted with the way Craig has integrated into the business and applied his expertise and market experience.
“His promotion to managing director is important to our growth plans going forward and I will be working closely with him on implementing our business strategy.
“I will retain responsibility for the governance of the company and specifically nurture the long-standing product partnerships we have with Antolini and Cosentino.”
