Replacement announced for retiring Christeyns MD

Neil Jones, Managing Director of Director at Clover Chemicals and Christeyns Food Hygiene, both part of the Christeyns UK group, is set to replace retiring Christeyns UK Managing Director Nick Garthwaite.

Mr Garthwaite joined the Bradford-based specialist hygiene chemical manufacturer in 2010 from Siemens. Over the last decade, he has been instrumental in the success and growth of the Christeyns UK group, heavily involved in acquisitions that have seen turnover grow from £21 million in 2010 to over £60 million in 2019.

“Neil is the perfect candidate to take over, highly experienced in the manufacturing industry, knowing the business and our people well. I have no doubt that he will lead Christeyns onward to new heights,” he said.

Mr Garthwaite will continue as Chair of North & West Yorkshire Chamber, on the Bradford & Airedale Manufacturing Alliance, as Trustee of Canterbury Imagine and as lead on Bradford Manufacturing Weeks amongst other activities.

He will also continue with Christeyns’ for a period of time as a non-executive Director.

Mr Jones joined Christeyns UK in December 2019, responsible for delivering strategy in a dual role across both the professional hygiene and food and beverage arms of the business.

With an extensive background in commercial management, he held leadership roles with national companies such as Unilever, Robert McBride and R&R prior to joining Christeyns.

“Christeyns is a unique business with a reputation for excellence and a strong customer service ethos. I am delighted to take on the challenge of continuing the prosperity of the company and to lead the next chapter in its growth and development,” he said.

He is carrying out a three-month hand over period and will officially take up his new role on 1st January 2021. His longer-term goals will look to developing new business opportunities, increasing output and efficiency, and ensuring the firm is set to take on a new decade post COVID-19.
