Specialist construction company makes three senior appointments

Specialist construction company, Henley Group has started 2024 on the front foot as it makes three senior appointments to its growing team.

Jessica Cowling joins as Director of Business Development and Marketing, Robert Gettings as Project Director for the new HZS Stainless Steel division, whilst Tom Cardoe, formerly Head of Restoration, has been promoted to Managing Director of Restoration.

As Director of Business Development and Marketing, Jessica will be responsible for the growth of the Henley Group brand, focusing on identifying new opportunities, building strategic partnerships, and heading up internal strategies and marketing communications for the full group.

Jessica has worked across a range of sectors as a media and marketing expert and brings vast experience in business development. Commenting on her move, Jessica said: “I’m so excited to be bringing my expertise on brand positioning to Henley Group.

“It’s such an exciting time for the company with the newly launched HZS Stainless Steel division, and we have a number of new business announcements to make soon. Henley Group will continue to evolve and I’m looking forward to working with the team to achieve significant growth and I’m confident we will reach more magnificent milestones this year.”

Henley Group has recently expanded its offering for clients within the construction industry by launching a new division, HZS Stainless Steel, and has appointed Robert Gettings as Project Director to head up the new proposition. Robert will be leading the stainless-steel business which will include running an experienced team to deliver manufactured components to sites across the UK.

Robert brings a wealth of experience in the construction industry, including 14 years in the steel industry. As part of his previous role, Robert delivered stainless steel components for the Barking Riverside Project, which at the time, was one of the largest regeneration sites in Europe.

Commenting on his new role, Robert said: “I’m honoured to be heading up the new HZS division and I’m looking forward to transferring my knowledge and expertise into the new role. It’s fantastic to be a part of a business that is delivering some of the most exciting GRC and stone masonry projects in the UK and overseas, and by expanding its portfolio, we are now able to offer greater efficiencies and quality guarantees to customers.

“As part of the new division, we have acquired a factory in Ossett that will enable us to provide jobs to local tradesmen and teach them the high-quality skills and craftmanship that is vital in the construction industry. It’s a fantastic feeling working for a company like Henley Group who want to contribute to the local community and values training the next generation of construction workers.”

Tom Cardoe, Henley Group’s former Head of Restoration, has recently been promoted to Managing Director of Restoration. Under Tom’s leadership, Henley Restoration and Remedials grew to become a multi-million-pound division.

Tom has led a wide variety of regeneration projects since joining the business including the restoration of the 19th century Grade II listed textile mill, Rutland Mills, in Wakefield, which had been in a state of disrepair for two decades. The space is set to become the largest creative hub outside of Tileyard North and has been hailed as the Battersea Power Station of the North. Other notable projects include the historic Grosvenor Gardens in Westminster, Manchester Piccadilly Warehouse, and Manchester Town Hall.

Speaking on the promotion, Tom said: “I am thrilled to be acting as Managing Director of Restoration and hope to continue to develop and grow the Henley Group’s stature in this field, as well as building on our reputation as a distinguished heritage restoration company that is committed to preserving and revitalising historic and listed structures.

“With a deep respect for architectural heritage, we are driven to safeguard the legacy of historic and important buildings for the future and will continue to offer clients a professionally delivered experience from initial assessment right through to project completion.”
