Michelle Quinn is the latest addition to Almond Engineering’s board. She is Almond’s first female director bringing a powerful combination of extensive company knowledge, business experience and a young female perspective to the board. Michelle will be responsible for helping to deliver £2 million growth in the next three years.
Michelle joined Almond after leaving school and has worked her way to the top of the company in just 13 years. “It’s an exciting time to be appointed to the board as we are in a period of extensive investment, in both machinery and people, to deliver superior service to our customers. We plan to invest heavily to grow our machining capacity by 40% this year alone. I’m also keen to promote engineering and the wide range of opportunities to train as an engineer to school leavers, particularly girls,” said Michelle.
Chris Smith, Chairman of Almond Engineering said: “Our success is a combination of our engineering expertise and the talented people we employ. I’m very pleased to welcome Michelle to the board. She has made a significant contribution to the company’s success and her insight, extensive knowledge of the company and its markets, together with her fresh perspective and ideas will be invaluable as we continue to expand.”
