New Directors appointed to PermaRock Board

We are very pleased to today (30 March 2023) announce the promotions of longstanding employees Nigel Watson and Kieran Loftus, who both join the board of directors at PermaRock.

Nigel becomes operations director following a quarter century with the business. Joining the business in 1996, Nigel has held several key operational roles within our team, building up targeted commercial insight to help drive the company forward.

Meanwhile, Kieran becomes logistics director, having originally joined the business more than 15 years ago. Throughout that time, he has used his extensive experience from across the textiles and waste sectors, playing an instrumental role in the growth of the business over recent years.

Sean Waldrum, our managing director, who has also been with the business for 34 years, said: “Our business philosophy brings performance and experience together with quality and innovation, and this is really reflected in Nigel and Kieran’s appointments to the board. They both bring incredible strengths that help us improve and expand our services and develop our systems even further.

“It’s an exciting time for us, and we’re incredibly pleased to be able to provide the room for growth for our staff. The whole board is now made up of people who have progressed up through the business, setting us up to continue business the ‘PermaRock way’, making sure that we continually improve, while continuing to offer and exceed the levels of service our customers have come to expect from us.”

The appointments recognise the capability and experience of Nigel and Kieran as we look set to double turnover to £12 million this year.

PermaRock owner Derek Horrocks said: “Having longstanding staff with the strengths to help us both improve and expand our services, while continuing to develop our systems will be central to our continued success as a business as we look to grow even further in the coming years.

“We know that our people are completely instrumental to the success we are seeing as the demands for energy efficiency measures are skyrocketing across all markets. It’s really important to us to continually reinvest in our people, whether it’s the recent refurbishment of our office to enhance the working environment further or providing people with growth opportunities – like Nigel and Kieran.”
