The Parkside Group Limited, which comprises Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems and Axim Architectural Hardware and is also the largest distributor of Duco sun control and ventilation products in the U.K., are pleased to announce the appointment of Peter Dziurzynski as Managing Director of the Board.
The Group has enjoyed record turnover in 2008. To capitalise on this performance and to take the Group to the next level, Peter’s appointment, in time for 2009, is an excellent strategic move.
Peter brings a wealth of experience from the European aluminium industry to the Group, most notably as Managing Director of Alcan. This expertise from operations and extrusion to architectural, specifier and contractor channels, will ensure the core of businesses can continue their high yield growth.
Derek Cook will remain as Chairman with overall control, but the day-to-day Managing Director role is delegated to Peter.
Derek stated “We have grown rapidly over the last 10 years and in order to continue this growth, direct hands-on experience from a multi-national is required. I have known Peter for many years, right from when he worked at Alcan France (Pechiney) and his energy and strategic skills will ensure the continued growth and success of the Group”.
Peter added “The Parkside Group Limited is an extremely successful business and coming into an organisation with profitable, clearly defined vertical markets offers a secure platform to develop new revenue streams and increase market share”.
Peter will join the Board from January 2009.
