WEATHERITE - Jim Gale Appointed Group MD At Weatherite

In a move designed to strengthen its management team at the highest level, Weatherite Group has announced the appointment of Jim Gale to the newly created position of Group Managing Director.

After holding senior directorship positions within the heating industry initially at British Gas and Oil Burners and latterly within Wolesley PLC Group at their Nu-Way Burner division, Jim joined Weatherite Group 15 years ago to head up Weatherite Manufacturing (WML) as Managing Director. During that time, he has driven the business forward, seeing turnover grow from £7.5 million in 1995 to over £18 million today, which was achieved through expanding WML’s customer base and diversifying its product range to meet those customers changing requirements.

Most recently he has played a significant role in moving WML’s product range into low carbon, environmentally sensitive technologies, including air conditioning solutions utilising natural refrigerants, trigeneration packaged energy centres and ADsorption chillers.

Married with one daughter, Jim, whose interests include football, squash and golf, is a passionate advocate of innovative engineering. A trained engineer himself, after a mechanical apprenticeship he spent 5 years with Potterton Boilers at their R&D Centre in London. So when Weatherite introduced their own apprentice training scheme, it was Jim who was behind it all the way and Weatherite now take on at least 8 apprentices each year.

In his new role, Jim will be responsible for the four operating companies that make up the Weatherite Group as well as continuing to head up Weatherite Manufacturing on a day to day basis.

“This is a very significant appointment for Weatherite” said Founder and Group Chairman John Whitehouse, “but we believe it is vital to enable us to move forward and capitalise on the opportunities being presented to us by the changing world in which the Weatherite Group of companies operates. I would like to be the first to congratulate Jim on his appointment and wish him every success for the future.”
