Snows Timber has seen substantial growth in all areas of its business in the past two years, increasing its annual turnover to £43m and seeing its annual softwood procurement alone rise to around 150,000m3.

With further growth in its core markets predicted for 2015-16, the board is restructuring its senior management team to reflect its business development ambitions.

As of 1 July, Mark Bowers will become commercial director, amalgamating the roles of procurement and sales and marketing. Jim Peryer will remain as managing director and has temporarily assumed additional responsibility for operations. Scott Russell will remain as finance director.

John Lloyd, Snows’ current procurement director, is returning to the North West of England after 15 years of achievement and dedicated service to the company. Paul Trevelyan retired as Snows’ operations director at the end of March, and his successor will be announced shortly.

“John Lloyd has made a considerable contribution to the business over the past 15 years and we wish him and his family every success as he relocates back to the North West,” said Mr Peryer. “Mark Bowers has international expertise in both wood procurement and sales and marketing, and bringing these skill-sets together as commercial director will help drive forward further growth for Snows Timber.”
