The boss of Walsall-based foundry and engineering group Chamberlin is to step down next week after the appointment of his replacement.
Tim Hair had revealed in May he intended to leave Chamberlin after seven years with the group, but would hold on while a replacement was recruited.
The company said today Mr Hair would quit as chief executive and company secretary on September 9. The new chief executive will be Kevin Nolan, 56-year-old European chief executive of US-owned engineering group Wall Collmonoy.
Mr Nolan has 30 years’ senior level experience in the engineering industry and previously worked for international group Doncasters, where he oversaw expansion of a number of its business operations.
Meanwhile, Chamberlin’s new group finance director, David Roberts, will take over Mr Hair’s role as company secretary.
The Chamberlin group employs more than 400 people, with its foundry in Walsall’s Chuckery Road. It also has foundries in Scunthorpe and Leicester while it also has a lighting business in Birmingham and the Exidor factory at Cannock.
