Maelor Forest Nurseries Ltd has announced the appointment of Mark Appleton as its new managing director.
Mark took up his post on 18 November 2020. He will take over the day to day running of the nursery from long-standing managing director and founder, Mike Harvey, who will be taking retirement in 2021. Mike was pivotal to the successful acquisition of Maelor by BSW Timber Ltd in 2019.
Mike and Mark will be working in tandem over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition is achieved. Mark brings with him many years’ experience operating at a senior level, notably holding the role of managing director at biomass fuel supplier MWF before its purchase by AMP Clean Energy in 2016.
Tony Hackney, CEO of BSW Timber Group Ltd, says: “We are very pleased to appoint Mark as a successor to Mike Harvey. Mark brings a wealth of skills to this business and his commercial acumen will be a huge benefit as we continue to grow the Maelor Nursery operation.”
