Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

Crown International has strengthened its management team with appointment of two business development specialists to drive growth in existing and new markets.

David Lyes joins the company as business development director, focusing on opportunities in new industries and developing new products, while Stephen Young will work across a number of business development projects, including CO2 Environmental and new product promotion.

Mark Stacey, managing director of Crown International, said: “I’m delighted to welcome David and Stephen to the team. Crown has established a strong track record developing safety equipment for road and rail-side applications but, over the past 12 months, we’ve identified a number of exciting opportunities to build on this expertise, transferring it into new markets.

“David brings over 20 years’ experience in senior roles to the team, including developing business from scratch in challenging global markets such as Russia, India, China and South Africa. He will lead our work in the renewable energy and electric vehicle charging industries, combining his new business, management and Six Sigma expertise to help us make inroads into these promising new markets.

“Stephen is also a senior professional with over 40 years’ experience in international business development, combined with an in depth understanding of engineering from the shop floor to the board room. He will provide valuable consultancy services to help us maximise opportunities with our sister companies, including in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries.”
