AWARD-WINNING asbestos management consultancy Acorn Analytical Services has announced a new senior leadership team to take the company into 2024 and beyond.

After a record-breaking year which saw the company recognised for High Growth at the National SME Awards while taking on new clients and winning new business across the UK, Acorn Analytical Services, which has offices in Cleckheaton, Northampton, Wolverhampton and London, is starting 2024 by making a number of high-profile appointments.

Asbestos consultancy building on the success of 2023

Andrew Jackson will assume the role of CEO and Steve McGlone will become Managing Director in the North. A prominent figure in the asbestos industry, Andrew is the current Chairman of ARCA and sits on the Governing Council and the ATaC Management Committee. Along with Andrew, Steve has decades of experience within the asbestos industry and is a founder of Acorn Analytical Services, based at the company’s head office in Cleckheaton. Meanwhile, Simon Rodham will take on the role of Commercial Manager, responsible for expanding the company’s client base in the North.

Steve said: “Following a hugely successful 2023, which saw a substantial increase in workload and client base across all our offices, Acorn Analytical Services has taken on a number of valuable new team members who have positively contributed to our continued growth within the asbestos industry. Acorn Analytical Services is one of the biggest names within the sector and, with this new team in place, we are very much looking forward to building on our success in 2024.”

Sam’s promotion comes just over a year after he joined the company as Commercial Director in Northampton in April 2022, bringing with him a wealth of experience and expertise. In recent months, Sam has overseen a period of tremendous growth including the opening of the company’s regional office in Wolverhampton in February last year.

Sian joined the company in 2014 as Commercial Manager, quickly establishing herself as a key member of the Acorn team and Daniel, who re-joined the company in 2020 has excelled since being promoted to Operations Manager in 2022.

Sam said: “In the ever-evolving landscape of the asbestos industry, our journey at Acorn Analytical Services has been nothing short of inspiring. As we reflect on the remarkable growth we achieved in 2023, it’s crucial to acknowledge that our success goes far beyond numbers. It’s a testament to the unwavering dedication of our team and the trust our clients have placed in us and we are really looking forward to a fantastic 2024.”
