Due to the impending retirement of some of Maher’s longest serving colleagues, the Sheffield based stockholder has made some exciting new appointments in recent months.

Greg Mackie joined Maher’s export sales team back in April 2019 as Business Development Manager, responsible for Maher’s customer base in the Asia Pacific and Middle East Regions.

Greg brings with him a wealth of experience of the metals industry, especially forgings, having spent the previous five years working for Arconic (Firth Rixson).

Greg regularly visits the countries in his territory and said: ‘I really look forward to meeting many, many more customers in the coming months and throughout 2020.’

In July 2019 Jamie Webster joined the company as Purchasing Manager. Jamie gained considerable experience in supplier management during his 12 years at Kiveton Park Steel and further 3.5 years at AMG Superalloys where he specialised in sourcing raw material globally whilst monitoring the commodity market.

Jamie said: ‘When I was approached to join Maher, I felt the time was right to take the opportunity of running a purchasing department, and due to previous experiences of Maher I couldn’t wait to get started. Six months on and it already feels like the right move. Maher are professional but also friendly in their approach to their employees and towards problem solving. Everyone has been very welcoming and accommodating through the first six months and I am excited to see what the future holds with Maher.’

Tom Procter joined Maher in October 2019 as Operations Manager. Tom brings 14 years of experience in the metals and machining industries with him, having previously worked for X-Cel Superturn and Gabbro Precision, managing engineering and steel stockholding businesses.

With his commercial background, Tom can appreciate customers’ needs, particularly in an engineering environment. ‘I’m excited to build on Maher’s reputation for delivering a quality product to meet customers’ delivery expectations in a challenging market.’ comments Tom.

Whilst not a new appointment as such, another exciting change in Maher’s commercial department, was the promotion of Bob Simpson to Sector Leader Oil & Gas UK in January 2020. Having originally joined the company in 2016 as Sales Engineer, covering Scotland and Norway, Bob has now taken responsibility for the UK Oil & Gas Sales Team.

Bob has over a decade of experience in the Oil & Gas sector, having formerly worked for Energy Alloys and Edgen Murray. He said: ‘I am looking forward to meeting and engaging with our fellow BVAA members throughout 2020.’

Maher are always happy to hear from individuals who may be looking for a new challenge, particularly those with experience of working with exotic metals such as nickel alloys and titanium.

There are opportunities at various levels, from apprenticeships to senior roles. If you’re interested in joining a forward-thinking company, get in touch - info@maher.com Exciting changes at Maher
