Omar Group is pleased to announce, with the continued growth and expansion of the company, the position of Group Managing Director has been reintroduced. This position will provide additional senior management bandwidth to the directors and assist with the management of the businesses’ five portfolio brands. With a wealth of knowledge and experience in manufacturing operations, David Cox joins the group, assuming the role of Group Managing Director on 19th March 2018.

David has experience managing a diverse range of manufacturing and engineering businesses including blue-chip multi-nationals and a stand-alone SME (two of which were in the construction products sector). He has worked overseas and has senior leadership experience with CarnaudMetalbox Engineering, IMI Precision Engineering and Saint-Gobain, as well as exposure to private equity.

I look forward to working hand in glove with David, I’ve no doubt that with the added support of such a highly capable business leader, Omar Group will continue its impressive recent rate of expansion.”

David Cox commented: “I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to work with the team at Omar; the performance of the business in recent years has been impressive! I look forward to meeting our customers, getting to know my new team and being instrumental in the success of the business; in particular, enjoying the benefits of the staycation boom and helping in the growth of park homes as part of the solution to the housing crisis - bringing affordable, age appropriate housing to the retirement community. I hope to bring some fresh ideas and a new perspective to what is already a high performing business and look forward to playing my part in what promises to be an exciting time for the group.
