SCOTTISH flooring sub-contractor Veitchi Flooring has announced the promotion of Stephen Logan to the position of MD.

Mr Logan joined the Cambuslang-based business, which was founded in 1912, in 2021 and takes over the role of MD following ‘repeat success’ both internally and externally in strengthening the flooring elements of the group.

On the promotion Mr Logan said, “The culture of the company is among the best I’ve experienced in my career; we appreciate the value of hard work and the requirements to operate within this environment.

“The current outlook for the construction industry remains somewhat stagnant for 2024, however a stabilisation of inflation and potential falls to interest rates will hopefully see this turn to growth for 2025 onwards. This will bring its own challenges in relation to skilled labour availability for which Veitchi are uniquely placed to tackle and deliver for our clients”.

Mr Logan joined the director team at Veitchi in 2022 following a successful period as the company’s operational lead. This represented a change from his traditional role as commercial lead in previous positions allowing a balanced view on the construction process, whilst retaining the risk profiling common with a commercial background.

His appointment comes as John Brown steps down from his position as flooring MD to concentrate on the group’s activities and continue to drive the business forward across its varying sectors.

Mr Brown commented, “Stephen’s appointment is a great milestone for the group. His dedication and passion have been key to achieving the performance improvements we have seen over the last few years.”
