J S Wright has promoted two highly experienced members of staff to Directors.
Matthew Coy and David Cook have taken on the positions of Contracts Director and Design & Estimating Director at the 132-year-old Birmingham-based company respectively.
With 47 years of industry experience between them, they are the latest examples of J S Wright’s investment in staff progression and development as the company moves forward as an employee ownership trust (EOT).
Matthew, who joined J S Wright in 2014 as contracts manager before rising to Associate Contracts Director, has worked in building services for 24 years. He has delivered projects valued at up to £26 million across the commercial fit out, industrial, hospitality, hotels and high-end residential sectors.
Based at the Aston head office, he now oversees all operational aspects of the company’s mechanical and electrical contracts for multi-million-pound developments carried out from Birmingham and J S Wright’s London office.
David Cook joined J S Wright in 1999 as a Technical Apprentice before rising to Design Engineer, Commercial Design Manager and then Associate Design Director.
Also head office based, he is now responsible for all pre-construction work while also working closely with Matthew on all projects. He leads a 30-strong team of design, estimating, CAD and document control staff.
Matthew and David are both fully qualified heat network consultants.
Phil Leech, J S Wright Managing Director, says: “These promotions to directors are part of a natural progression for those that show outstanding team leadership skills and are committed to upholding our values of quality, integrity and collaboration. I have every confidence that our M&E business growth and service delivery will go from strength to strength under Matthew and David’s directorship.”
