Castings Technology Holding’s Board Appoint a New Non-executive Director, John Yates

June 27, 2024

We are delighted to announce the appointment of John Yates to Castings Technology Holding’s Board as a Non-executive Director.

John is an experienced journalist and former Chief Leader Writer on one of Britain’s leading regional newspapers. Leaving the Yorkshire Post in 2004 he developed an expertise in working-winning and proposals management for major corporates in the defence, health, aviation, rail, infrastructure and construction sectors.

This included successful HS2 bids in excess of £3 billion for international JVs, the Olympic Media Centre, GCHQ, BT Openreach (value £1.2 billion) and the BAE Systems Programme Controls Transformation project with Atkins and Deloitte for driving productivity improvements in submarine manufacture at Barrow. He also led the bid for the multi-billion dollar development of Lusail City ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.

He has a longstanding interest in regional economic growth which began when he was asked by the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University and the then Sheffield City Region to author a report for Lord Mandelson on the emerging new economy in the region – the New Industries, New Jobs report led to significant R&D money coming to the region.

He was Director of External Affairs and Communications at the AMRC assisting its expansion in the North West and North Wales and establishing close relationships with key Whitehall departments including BEIS, the Treasury and Downing Street, along with the organisation’s leading manufacturing partners.

He continues his interest in regional innovation as a director of Bridgway Global which he co-founded with Keith Ridgway and Iain Thomson.

John is a member of the Climbers’ Club and was editor of its Journal, following in the footsteps of George Mallory. But not yet disappearing without trace.

John will be instrumental in intensifying our Company communication activities, in particular drawing attention to the very unique challenges facing the business in the short to medium term.

We all extend a very warm welcome to John and look forward to his valuable contribution.
