After more than three decades at the helm of David Luke, managing director David Burgess has stepped down from the role to be replaced by his daughter and the company’s former commercial director Kathryn Shuttleworth. 
 
Thirty-six year old Shuttleworth, who was made David Luke’s commercial director in 2013, is well equipped for her new challenge having been with the company since 2002, working across virtually all areas of the business during that time.
 
Supporting Shuttleworth will be an experienced team of directors and managers, with former MD David Burgess stepping into the role of executive chairman.
 
“It will be a new era, but still with the same values and principles that have guided our thinking since 1982,” says Burgess. “It is essential that drive and determination strengthen through the process of succession, and I am very proud to be handing over those responsibilities, among many others, to my daughter Kathryn.
 
“Everyone at David Luke is confident in Kathryn’s appointment, and look forward to seeing her make her mark on the company in 2015 and onwards. She will be responsible for driving the David Luke 2020 vision forward, focusing on customer service, alongside growth in sales and profitability.”
