Cumbrian stone quarriers Burlington have appointed two new directors to their board. Mike Dickinson becomes quarries & environment director while Mike Ridding becomes planning director.
Mike Dickinson, carrying on a family tradition that began with his grandfather, has 24 years\' experience of working in Burlington quarries. Central to his brief is co-ordination of material extraction from the company\'s five quarries (Kirby, Elterwater, Brandy Cragg, Broughton Moor and Bursting Stone).
Mike Ridding has been with Burlington for 10 years. He takes responsibility for the continued implementation of the company\'s strategic plan, especially in terms of information technology (and he has already introduced systems enabling the integration of operations from stone extraction to accounts).
Malcolm Hatch, joint managing director, says the two new directors will bring to the board a huge amount of understanding and enthusiasm, which will prove instrumental in taking Burlington successfully into the new millennium.
