TILHILL has bolstered its senior management team with three new appointments.

The recently announced appointments Tilhill made relating to its board of directors resulted in regional manager vacancies to fill. The company’s ethos to recruit from within means that two area managers have been successful in further progressing their careers.

David Conway will be filling the role of regional manager for North & Central England, and Iwan Parry was successful in becoming regional manager for Wales & Marches. In addition, Ewan McIntosh will head up the company’s landscaping team.

Ewan is described by Tilhill as a highly motivated and dedicated professional with over 20 years’ experience in the forestry, landscaping, and utility service industries and is a professional member of the Institute of Chartered Foresters.

David Conway has over 20 years’ experience of working in forestry. Undertaking his training with the National Trust, he has run his own forestry business and has been with Tilhill since 2000. David was recently made an area manager when the forestry team restructured and has now progressed further to become regional manager for North & Central England.

Based in Llandovery, Iwan Parry is a multi-award winning, experienced, forester of over 25 years, and has managed a diverse forestry portfolio across Wales, from upland conifer plantations to lowland woodlands and new planting schemes for a wide range of client and management objectives. Iwan is also a chartered forester and currently chairman of the ICF Wales Regional Committee.

Gavin Adkins, managing director of Tilhill, said of these recent appointments: “I am delighted that thanks to Tilhill’s ethos of promoting from within, we have once again been able to recruit from our own pool of talented staff.

“Our ability to do this starts right at the beginning of a manager’s career with Tilhill, and particularly if they have been successful in being appointed onto our graduate scheme, whereby we undertake a two-year programme of training and development.

“I very much wish Ewan, David, and Iwan all the very best in their new roles and welcome their contributions to further strengthen an already highly motivated senior manager team at Tilhill.”
