Centurion has invested in three new directors to support Centurion’s long-term growth and product innovation plans.

The new directors will build on the heritage of the Centurion brand strength but accelerate a renewal built on innovation, user insights, and transformative partnerships.

Technical & Operations Director Mandy Humphreys will focus on Centurion’s technical and operations functions whilst leading on the strategy for the manufacturing environment. HR Officer Stacey Wightman will be spearheading Centurion’s crucial engagement and learning and development step change.

Jeff Ward, Chief Executive Officer since December 2015, has led a fundamental review of Centurion’s business strategy in order to craft a growth strategy based on detailed customer insights and intensified global partnerships.

Jeff has experience as Commercial Director at Britax Child Safety where he was responsible for sales, marketing, product management, and customer service.

Andrew Gordon was appointed as Marketing Director in October 2016, having spent two years at Brady Corporation in a lead communication and customer-marketing role for its health and safety business, Seton.

Chris Zanona was also appointed as new Finance & IT Director in March 2017. He has spent the last 14 years in various leadership roles at Bernard Matthews, most recently leading the entire IT function for the business.

Finally, Steve Neumann was appointed as Sales Director in May 2017 having spent 17 years at Bosch in various senior commercial roles within the power tools division.

Jeff Ward, CEO at Centurion, said: “Our leadership team has already begun to transform the business and will continue to do so whilst doing everything we can to support our customers and their needs. We’re proud that Centurion is building on an existing tea, with over 1,100 years of experience and I’m delighted to lead Centurion at such an exciting time together with this world-class board.”
