Board Appointments

Following another successful year of excellent performance and growth, NIS Ltd has today announced the appointment of two new executive team members.

Tom Atkinson will be appointed Operations Director, taking responsibility for the manufacturing and project delivery portfolios, and Ian Hardman will be appointed Commercial Director overseeing the commercial and supply chain portfolios.

Speaking about the appointments, NIS LTD Managing Director Steve Rothwell said “I’m delighted to be welcoming Tom and Ian to the Executive Team at such an exciting time in our evolution as a business. We are continuing to expand our capacity to meet our clients’ requirements and I know they will both play a pivotal role in developing the ever-growing opportunities for our people, our supply chain and our industry partners. I’m also thrilled that both appointments have been made from our own internal talent pool, showing testament not only to their individual skills, but also our continued investment and commitment to our Leadership Development Programme”.

Tom, who was previously the NIS Head of Project Portfolio, echoed Steves’ sentiments saying “I’ve been with NIS for over 10 years, and I’ve been part of the ongoing transformation in terms of continued improvement to our culture, performance and facilities so I’m delighted to have the opportunity to influence and support our journey”.

Ian added “I couldn’t have imagined when I joined NIS as a Graduate in 2009 that I would be joining the Board of Directors 15 years later, so I’m incredibly proud to be part of the team and I’m very much looking forward to the challenge”.

The appointments also coincide with the retirement of Gill Marsden who has been an integral part of the NIS team for almost 16 years “Leading NIS as their Managing Director, and supporting Steve as part of his executive team has been the greatest privilege of my career and I will miss everyone enormously. But it is wonderful to be able to leave knowing the business is in such good hands and I look forward to watching it continue to flourish under the new executive team”.

On Gills impending retirement Steve said “Gill embodies everything that is NIS. It is her legacy that leaves us with the strongest foundations to continue our growth long into the future. Gill has been a mentor, leader, and friend to many over the years which has underpinned the culture of what NIS represent both as people and as a business and we will miss her greatly. Gill will always be part of the NIS family and I’m sure all will join me in thanking Gill for her contribution to NIS and wish her our sincere best wishes for her future”.
