Senior Changes Announced at James Latham

Added 04.11.17

James Latham has announced that Peter Latham will be retiring as Non-Executive Chairman of James Latham Plc and will be leaving the business at the Annual General Meeting on 23rd August 2017.

Nick Latham will be taking over as Executive Chairman from that date.

Peter has worked for the company for 44 years and has been on the Plc board since 1983, taking over as Chairman in December 2006.

During his time with James Latham, Peter has also held a number of senior positions within the timber industry and is the current Chairman of the PEFC International Board.  In 2012, he was awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List in recognition of his service to the UK wood industry.

Nick Latham commented, “I would like to personally thank Peter for everything he has done for our family business, especially the way that he has lead the business since becoming Chairman almost eleven years ago.  The results speak for themselves. 

“Peter will be missed by everyone, and I am sure that the colleagues and friends he has made, both at James Latham and throughout the industry during his career, will want to join me in wishing him a very happy retirement.

“In what is our 260th year in business, I am very much looking forward to taking on this new role and to continuing our journey.  It’s an exciting time in the industry and I am relishing the challenge of taking up the reins to carry on Peter’s great work and to addressing emerging customer needs in an ever-changing marketplace.”
