Harrogate Water Strengthens Board with Two Appointments
Harrogate Water has appointed head of finance Damien Wilkinson and operations manager Simon Knaggs to the board of directors. Damien joined the company a year ago from The Wolseley Group and previously spent 12 years with Pace plc and ten years with KPMG.
Simon, who has been with the business for four years, began his career as an apprentice with David Brown before gaining formidable experience with Coca Cola and then Macaw and Cott Beverages.
Announcing the appointments, managing director James Cain said: ‘These are key additions to our board and provide us with a great, all-encompassing skillset. Over the last year, Damien has been instrumental in developing our investment strategy for the next stage in our business growth. As operations manager, Simon has played a critical role in meeting new business demands, overseen the deployment of state-of-the-art technology and established Harrogate Water as a centre of technical excellence.’
They join James, chairman and business founder Tony Cain, sales and marketing director Rob Pickering and non-executive director Paul Dickinson.
