Langley Strengthens Its Position with Succession of Key Appointments

National roofing and waterproofing expert, Langley, has made four significant appointments in line with its ambitious growth strategy to further strengthen its position as a UK market leader.

Ray Horwood CBE and Anne Hubble join as Non-Executive Director and Group Finance Director respectively and Dean Wincott and Michael Smith join Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd as Sales and Marketing Director and Head of Technical. These appointments signal changes across the sales & marketing, finance and technical sides of the business. With more than 120 years combined experience, the new additions arrive as Langley continues to grow and expand its services across the UK.

Ray Horwood CBE joins as an ambassador and advisor to the company, taking a position on the board as a Non-Executive Director. An ex-RAF senior officer, Ray is better known in the industry as the recent CEO of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors, where he supported roofing companies throughout the UK, and as the CEO of Competent Roofer – a government-endorsed scheme that allows roofing companies to self-authorise on building regulations. His wealth of experience and industry knowledge equips Langley with an even greater insight into its customers and suppliers, providing a platform to further enhance its offering to the roofing industry.

Strategic Leadership
Sitting on the board in a new position for the company, Anne Hubble joins as Group Finance Director where she will head up both the HR and Accounts teams. Bringing a demonstrable track record of driving growth within SMEs and large businesses, Anne has experience in all aspects of banking, from mergers and acquisitions to driving organic growth, and will provide strategic and financial leadership to Langley in support of existing and future growth opportunities.

Dean Wincott has been appointed as Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd’s Sales and Marketing Director. Bringing more than 25 years’ sales experience, which includes specialising in maintenance, refurbishment and new build schemes at Apollo Group, Dean has been brought on board to continue driving Langley’s recent growth in the UK. He’ll be responsible for developing Langley’s sales and marketing strategies, maintaining existing client relationships and building the company’s existing portfolio through new business development.

As the newly appointed Head of Technical for Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd, Michael Smith will work alongside John Austine, Langley Technical Director, to support and enhance the company’s technical customer service strategy, ensuring the technical team continues to deliver high quality support, guidance and expertise to stakeholders. With more than 20 years’ experience, Michael specialises in the contracting side of the roofing industry and brings valuable knowledge of the operational elements of roofing to Langley’s technical team.

Tony Silvestri, Managing Director of Langley, commented: “Over the past 12 months we have seen steady growth and these new appointments show Langley’s continual commitment to optimising its future by creating solid depth and foundations. Our focus is firmly on quality and service, something which is reflected in the calibre of our new appointments. These new additions bring a wealth of experience that will ensure Langley continues to deliver a first class service for its contractors, stakeholders and clients alike.”
