LDD appoints John Stimson to head up Fire Protection
We would like to give a warm LDD welcome to the newest member of our senior team, John Stimson, who is joining us to head up our Fire Protection Division.
John has worked in the fire protection industry for over 30 years, starting out in 1998 working as a fixer installing structural boards, spraying and ducting solutions. John’s time as a fixer allowed him to understand both the methods and products used in Passive Fire protection and this knowledge naturally allowed his career to progress into management, managing a number of large project teams throughout London and the South East.
Johns last appointment was for Mitie Fire Protection, where he was a Senior Business Development Manager where he was responsible for procurement, estimating and managing all commercial aspects of many concurrent large scale projects.
LDD owner Ziggy Seagroatt said of the appointment:
“Securing the services of someone of John’s calibre, at such a busy time for the fire protection industry, is yet another show of intention from LDD to develop our company and specifically our passive fire protection division. We believe that recent investments in the firm, such as our brand new head offices in Beckton, will continue to lure the best in the business to join the LDD revolution and this is proving to be true. We will continue to invest in people as part of our ambitious growth plans. Because at LDD, it’s what we do.”
Our Fire Protection Division is currently undergoing a rapid period of growth which has seen us go international for the first time, working on a very large project in Denmark. And so this is a perfect time for John to join us and not only continue to oversee its growth but take this division to the next level and cement our place as London’s number one. Welcome John, from all the team.
