Curtis Moore is delighted to announce Ashleigh Thomson as the latest appointment to our Board of Directors.
Ashleigh has worked as our Business Development Manager for the past 6 years and has now become our Business Development Director. She joins fellow board members; Andrew Devlin, Yvonne Devlin, Euan Walker and Alex Miller from January 2017.
With a female co-founder in Yvonne Devlin, women on the board and females making up around a quarter of the company’s in-house workforce, Curtis Moore is challenging the perception that construction is a male dominated industry.
A new role…
In her new role as Business Development Director, Ashleigh’s responsibilities will include overseeing the estimating department, ensuring tenders are submitted on time, continue to liaise with clients and main contractors on new business opportunities, new locations and markets.
She has been very successful in expanding our customer base – servicing all our clients as promptly and efficiently as possible at tender stage. Over the years she has built lasting relationships and will continue to help develop the business where possible.
Working alongside our other directors, who unanimously voted for her promotion to the board, Ashleigh intends to define the long term organisational strategic goals to ensure the continuing success of Curtis Moore.
Speaking of her promotion, Ashleigh has said, “This is a massive achievement for me. It’s a position I have aspired to for a long time but didn’t expect to achieve it quite so soon. It was very humbling to hear that the Board of Directors felt I was deserving of the role.”
“Over its almost 17 years, Curtis Moore has continued to go from strength to strength and has established itself as one of the leading roofing and cladding contractors in the UK. As Business Development Director, my aim is to continue this growth throughout the UK whilst also continuing to offer the highest standards of service to our clients as well as seek out new opportunities.”
Inspiring women in construction…
When asked if she hoped her new role will help inspire other females to consider a career in construction Ashleigh said, “Absolutely. Over the past few years I’ve noticed a significant increase in women in various roles within the industry which is refreshing to see however, I feel that construction is still very much seen as a ‘man’s world’. Yet, it really does offer fantastic career opportunities for men and women alike and I hope that with more women taking up key roles within organisations this will encourage women to seriously consider a career in this industry.”
Managing Director of Curtis Moore, Andrew Devlin, stated, “Yvonne and I are delighted to welcome Ashleigh to the Board of Directors. She has demonstrated great commitment, integrity and hungry to succeed, which we believe are essential in achieving both personal and career goals. We’re very proud of her and believe she will be an excellent addition to our strategic team.”
