Lakes, a carbon neutral company and leading manufacturer of showering spaces, has appointed Mike Gahir as a Director – he joined the family-owned business last month to help accelerate Lakes’ long-term strategy.
Mike’s experience includes Finance Director for a steel processing business, and most recently a Director in the Corporate Finance function of a global accountancy firm.
With real strengths in driving strategy, finance, organisational change, and a focus on culture and values, Mike will be focussing on key projects to help Lakes take advantage of growth opportunities in the post-COVID environment.
An MBA graduate from Warwick Business School, Mike also gives his time to help others through various University based mentoring schemes, supporting young people on the start of their career journeys.
In addition, he is Chair of the Board of Trustees for a £15m turnover Walsall-based charity. His work here contributed to Mike being selected as a finalist of the 2020 Institute of Directors Awards for West Midlands Director of the Year in the Non-Executive Director category.
Bev Brown, Lakes Managing Director, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Mike to our board. We’ve achieved so much since re-launching our brand two years ago, including introducing new products and developing new selling opportunities for our customers.
“Whereas many businesses may have stayed away from making investment decisions in recent months given the effects of COVID-19, Mike’s appointment underlines Lakes’ commitment to the market.
“This next phase of our growth is hugely exciting, and we hope to be in a position to outline the positive results of our plans in the near future.”
