A Business Studies graduate and chartered management accountant, Mr Townsend has specialised in financial management throughout his career, which has included 29 years of fast-moving commercial experience at leading retailer Toys ‘R’ Us, where he was formerly financial controller.

At Cistermiser and Keraflo, Mr Townsend will hold management responsibility for all aspects of finance, as well as HR and business administration for both companies.

“We are proud to be British manufacturing companies and prudent investments to drive our strategic vision will be key to ongoing success,” says Mr Townsend. “Our Cistermiser and Keraflo product ranges, distributed via long-standing trade partners, are supported using the latest CRM and enterprise software platforms, while brand new digital distribution channels are opening up exciting possibilities for the future.”
