Ormrod steps down after Havelock pre-pack sale

Shaun OrmrodThe chief executive of a Fife office fittings business that was bought out of pre-packed administration three months ago has resigned from the company that emerged from the deal.

He has been replaced at Havelock International in an acting capacity by the firm’s chief operating officer, George McAdam who joined the company in July.

In a statement, the company said: “Shaun Ormrod has stepped down from his role as chief executive with immediate effect having decided that it was time for a new challenge.

George McAdam, who has made a positive impact since joining us in July as chief operating officer, will be acting chief executive for the foreseeable future and as such will be leading a number of key initiatives to drive the business forward.”

Mr Ormrod joined the company in September 2017 to develop and lead the implementation of the company’s turnaround and growth plan.

Previously, he was CEO of Farnborough International for over nine years.  Hosting the Farnborough International Airshow – the world’s largest event of its kind – he was responsible for significant revenue and profit growth through brand development and business diversification.
