Donaldson Timber Engineering announces senior appointment

Manufacturer of engineered timber components Donaldson Timber Engineering (DTE) has promoted Anya Mayor to Business Systems Director.

In her new role, Mayor will be responsible for managing the business systems, streamlining processes and sharing best practices within DTE branches, while also taking learnings from her extensive time in the I-joist side of the business into the truss side.

Mayor began her career as a graduate trainee at the Wolseley Group, before becoming an I-Joist Designer. Since joining DTE in 2010, she has moved up the ranks from an I-Joist Designer and Design Office Manager to General Manager, before taking on her current role as Business Systems Director.

Her promotion has also enabled five other colleagues to progress, into leadership positions at DTE - Tom Edwards (General Manager), Lauren Murdoch and Tom Pocklington (Assistant General Managers), and Abbie Murphy and Lynsey Fowler (Team Leaders). 

Mayor succeeds Callum Henderson, who has retired after more than 27 years with the business.

Commenting on the appointment, Luke Roberts, Managing Director, said: "Having worked with Anya in the I-Joist team for over a decade, she has continued to make an impressive contribution to the business. With a diligent approach and strong relationships with customers and colleagues, she is a great asset to the team. I look forward to working with Anya in her new role as we streamline and future-proof the business."

Mayor added: "I am excited to take on this new role to drive growth and further DTE's outstanding reputation for product quality, service and delivery.

"Since joining DTE over 14 years ago, I have seen a lot of positive change within the business, and I hope to help continue driving this in my new role. Developing talent from within has always been a key commitment from Luke and the team, and by giving employees the opportunity to try different areas of the business, as I have, we are proud to help colleagues, including women, move up."
