Changing times at Thorite

12 May 2021

FOLLOWING THE retirement of long-standing sales director, Alan Donkersley, Thorite has made changes to its senior management team.

The team now consists of Mark Yates, who replaces Alan Donkersley as the new sales and marketing director, with Richard Oldale joining Thorite as capital and aftermarket director. 

Before joining Thorite two years ago, Yates had spent about 30 years in senior roles in the compressed air industry and Oldale has worked for some of the world’s largest compressor manufacturers, both developing sound reputations for sales and customer service management. 

On the managerial changes, Stephen Wright, managing director of Thorite, says: “I want to thank Alan for his many years of dedicated service to Thorite and we wish him all the very best for his well-deserved retirement.”  

“Alan has been pivotal in many of our initiatives, including growing our business and industry reputation and, most recently the move to our brand-new Bradford headquarters. The new management team is now in place to build upon this success by capitalising on the investments that we’ve made.”

“Together with our hugely experienced teams supporting Mark and Richard, customers can continue to expect the highest levels of quality and service from us and can look forward to more exciting developments in the future.”
