Family-owned Manchester & Cheshire Construction, based in Salford, is looking to grow its annual turnover from £8.5m last year to £20m by 2018. To help with this, it has appointed business growth specialist Peter Collins as its first-ever chairman.
Peter Collins is a main board adviser to 30 northwest companies and holds several other non-executive posts across the region. He was a co-founder of Fast Forward Growth, a Manchester-based organisation that advises companies on their expansion and funding strategies.
David Lowe, managing director of Manchester & Cheshire Construction, said: “We have been working with Peter in a less formal capacity for some time and we have found his input to be invaluable. His appointment as our first-ever chairman brings his skills further into the mix. He points us in the right direction, challenges our traditional way of thinking and provides a sounding board for new ideas.”
Mr Collins said: “With a strong trading history, robust balance sheet, highly-reputable project portfolio and repeat client list, Manchester & Cheshire Construction is ripe for increased momentum and I am looking forward to using my experience and skills to help the company realise its growth plans.”
