Staff Shareholding Shows Signs Of A Strong Future

The UK & Ireland’s largest sign company, Signs Express, is pleased to announce changes within their head office culminating in the appointment of a new managing director, Craig Brown, and two further directors to the business.

The UK & Ireland’s largest sign company, Signs Express, is pleased to announce changes within their head office culminating in the appointment of a new managing director, Craig Brown, and two further directors to the business.

In a move which confirms the bright future of the business, former managing director David Corbett becomes chairman of the leading sign franchise, Frank Eliel remains finance director and Tony Marsh and Peter Sayles become sales & marketing director and operations director respectively.

The three key personnel – Craig, Tony and Peter - have all invested in the business to become shareholders, demonstrating their long term commitment to the successful business operation.

As founding directors of Signs Express, David Corbett and Frank Eliel first established the award winning franchise in 1989, discovering a gap in the market place for a professional signs and graphics operation using the then new technology of computer cut vinyl – rather than traditional paint methods.

18 years on and the business has grown year on year – with over 85 franchise territories occupied across both the UK & Ireland as well as an enviable reputation for quality and service within the sign industry.

One of Signs Express’ first employees was Craig Brown, who joined the Norwich pilot operation first in a sign making capacity; and as the company grew, heading up the franchise support team, becoming director of franchise support in 2003. Craig is also an active member of the British Signs & Graphics Association, the trade body for the sign industry, becoming president in 2007.

Tony Marsh and Peter Sayles have also both been with the company for many years, bringing with them a wealth of experience in both franchising and their own specialised fields.

Commenting on his new appointment, Craig said, “We have a strong team at head office and I am very proud of our achievements so far. The introduction of new directors and increase in shareholding ensures we have a long term sustainable future and enables us to develop the business further in the coming years. We are all very excited about the opportunities the new appointments will bring”.
