New Directors announced as two senior managers promoted

We're pleased to announce the promotion of two of our senior managers to director level, following their continuous, long-term commitment and achievement in their previous roles.

James Gysin is appointed Contracts Director. James joined us in 1994 as Branch Sales Manager at the then Watford branch, but within 18 months was running the company’s flagship Milton Keynes branch, where he delivered 20 years of year-on-year growth to make Milton Keynes the company's largest location.

In 2015, he moved to a wider management role as a Regional General Manager (South East), responsible for all branch and rental activities in the region.

In the past two years, he became our General Manager - National and Key Accounts, leading to his recent promotion to Contracts Director.

Nick McGowan moves from Head of Operations to Operations Director, having joined Dawsongroup truck and trailer in 2011, initially as Branch Sales Manager in Manchester, where he increased turnover by 100%.

Within five years, he was appointed Regional General Manager (North) and was responsible for all branch and rental activities across the company’s nine northern branches, achieving a record year for turnover and profit in 2015.

In early 2018, his remit was extended to take on national responsibility for customer fulfilment, service delivery, operating procedures and profit across the whole of our nationwide network of 23 branches.

Announcing the promotions to director level, our MD, John Fletcher, said: “Both appointments are thoroughly well-deserved and reward Nick and James’ significant efforts and consistently impressive results over a number of years. They also demonstrate the Dawsongroup main board’s determination to reward loyalty and build succession through achievement.”
