Annemarie Horne, Scaffolding Director, who set up the business with her husband John in 1995 was delighted to appoint Kellyanne to her new role. She said: “Kellyanne is like a daughter to us. She is at the very core of our business and has a fantastic relationship, not only with our team but with clients too. Her loyalty and unwavering attitude to go above and beyond to help those around her has been exceptional and will stand her in good stead as she moves into the role as our Operations Director.
“Kellyanne’s progression has been a long time in the making but with the continued growth and success of the business, we felt the time was right. We look forward to seeing Kellyanne continue to thrive in her new position.”
John Jack, who is currently JR Scaffold’s Contracts Manager, is taking the step up to Contracts Director and has been instrumental in driving forward some of the businesses’ key projects in recent years.
John joined JR Scaffold 12 years ago as Contracts Supervisor and is second in command to Managing Director John Horne in the day-to-day running of the business. He is responsible for managing the team on-site and liaising with clients regarding the contracts program of works.
John Horne, Managing Director of JR Scaffold, added: “I am thrilled to elevate John to Contracts Director. His dedication is second-to-none and he is one of the most honest and trustworthy people I have ever known, which has made him very popular with our team and clients alike.
“His desire and drive to make JR Scaffold the best it can be, filters through the team and he is a true inspiration to us all. His service and attention to detail has helped put us on the scaffolding map, which is a fantastic platform to start from as he takes on the job as Contracts Director. He is hugely respected by all and very deserving of this recognition.
“JR Scaffold has been operating for 28 years and continues to go from strength to strength, so I am thrilled to recognise some of the people who have helped get us here and have continued to drive the business forward to where it is today. We have huge ambitions for the future, and I am delighted to have such a strong team of people around us, to help drive us forward. Huge congratulations to both Kellyanne and John on their promotions.”
