Customade Group, the market-leading fenestration business, has announced the appointment of Will Gold as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Will was previously Managing Director at Customade subsidiary Stevenswood where he spent five years. Under Will’s stewardship Stevenswood showed steady growth and now operates a total of 29 trade counters across the country – from Inverness to Hampshire.

Will said: “It’s a privilege to get the chance to lead the wonderful team of people we have in the Customade Group.  We want to be recognised as being the best at what we do. Our laser sharp focus on improving service levels to our customers has ensured that the group has come a long way in our quest to become the leading service provider in the industry. We are rightly proud of the progress we have made so far but through further innovation and improvements we will continue to strive to improve performance for the benefit of our customers, colleagues and stakeholders”
