Lawsons names Jeremy Norris as sole MD

Jeremy Norris has been appointed Managing Director of Lawsons (Whetstone) Ltd.

Having joined the company in 1994, Jeremy has served in a number of roles including over fifteen years as Commercial Director and most recently alongside CFO Paul Rushent as Joint Managing Director.

Chairman Simon Lawson said “We are delighted that Jeremy has agreed to lead the company through a period of consolidation after considerable acquisition activity. His experience in multiple roles and in-depth knowledge of the business makes him the ideal candidate to oversee this next chapter in Lawsons’ evolution.”

Over the past three years Lawsons has rapidly expanded through a number of acquisitions including AVS Fencing & Landscaping, The Landscape Centre, Oxford Fencing, Witham Timber and Briants of Risborough, bringing its total number of branches in the South and East to 36.

Jeremy said: “I am honoured to have the confidence of the Board. It has been invaluable working alongside Paul (Rushent) over the past three years, but our size and structure now requires Paul to increase his focus upon finance and legal requirements.

“I look forward to working with all my fellow Directors in steering the business through the exciting growth years ahead.”
