Alan’s a driv­ing force in roof tile busi­ness

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - DISTRICT NEWS -

One of the se­nior man­agers at Lochmaben­based Rus­sell Roof Tiles is cel­e­brat­ing a ma­jor mile­stone.

Af­ter first join­ing as a grad­u­ate trainee man­ager, Alan Young, now 40, is re­gional sales di­rec­tor and is cel­e­brat­ing 15 years with the firm.

Em­ploy­ing 61 peo­ple at its Locham­ben site, Rus­sell Roof Tiles is a lead­ing in­de­pen­dent roof tile man­u­fac­turer and over the years, Alan’s roles have in­cluded sales ex­ec­u­tive in the north west, area man­ager for Scot­land and north- east Eng­land and re­gional sales man­ager for Scot­land and north Eng­land.

He says that since he joined the in­dus­try he has seen many changes. The evo­lu­tion of tech­nol­ogy, he says, has taken great steps for­ward across man­u­fac­tur­ing and con­struc­tion.

Re­flect­ing on the past 15 years, Alan said: “The peo­ple at Rus­sell Roof Tiles are what makes the busi­ness. Ev­ery­one works as a team. Ev­ery­one works hard, but it is re­ward­ing – not just mon­e­tary, but with recog­ni­tion where it is due and it’s good to see re­sults from that hard work too.”

In recog­ni­tion of his long ser­vice, Alan was pre­sented with an award by An­drew Hay­ward.

Mr Hay­ward, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Rus­sell Roof Tiles, said: “Alan is a fan­tas­tic mem­ber of the team and a real as­set to the busi­ness and we’re de­lighted that he’s achieved his long ser­vice award – the first of many we hope.” Alan Young, of Lochmaben’s Rus­sell Roof Tiles, re­ceives his award from man­ag­ing di­rec­tor An­drew Hay­ward
