The existing senior management team of Richard Smith, Angela Phillips, Jeremy Phillips, Allan Little, Martin Rowe and Mike Davis have formed a new holding company, East Manor Group which will manage its three operating companies which includes CDW Systems Ltd, Clearway Doors & Windows Ltd and Designex Cabinets Ltd. Indeed, the MBO comes one year after Mike became Managing Director at CDW and he is quick to emphasise that although the company has been purchased from its Group Chairman, Jerry Webb, the new owners don’t intend to make any changes operationally to how the business is run on a day to day basis. To that end, Jerry will continue to be very active within the business, reviewing the strategic direction and pathway of the company well into the future. Mike comments: “The management buyout at CDW Systems marks the beginning of the next chapter in the company’s history but we also want to stay true to our company’s long- standing values and standards.” EXTENDED RANGE IN NEW SHOWROOM » » REAL ALUMINIUM IS investing once again for its growing network of customers with the opening of a new showroom.
