Wearwell has scored a major coup with the appointment of key industry figure, Andy Fawcett.
Fawcett is the former Dimensions Group Sourcing Director and prominent figure in the workwear field. He joins the Staffordshire-based Wearwell as Production Director in the wake of incumbent Garry Clayton’s announced retirement after 43 years at the firm.
Fawcett is a global sourcing specialist with over 20 years experience in supply strategy initiatives. He was previously based at Leicestershire’s ready to wear workwear and corporate clothing specialists, Dimensions.
He said, “I’m excited to be joining Wearwell as I’m eager to work in a fast paced, high growth environment, where I can help build a world class supply chain utilising my existing and ever evolving relationships. I think 2020 is going to be an exciting time and I’m really looking forward to being part of Wearwell’s ongoing success.”
As part of his varied role, Fawcett will be responsible for product production, driving and executing Wearwell’s sourcing priorities, collaborating with vendors and seeking solutions to increase Wearwell’s manufacturing speed, while lowering costs and maintaining quality and rate of innovation.
Wearwell CEO, Richard Wright said, “Andy’s experience and background make him a great addition to Wearwell’s management team. Andy not only brings with him decades worth of industry experience, he’s the type of person who is ready to get stuck in and help Wearwell deliver our growth targets, as well as support the business as we focus on multiple new opportunities.”
Andy joins Wearwell on the 2nd of September.
