David Cartwright, the Gardenware Divisional Managing Director of Cawthorne based Naylor Industries has been recognised in the Insider Magazine 42 under 42 listing, which singles out Yorkshire’s top emerging business talent.
David Cartwright, a graduate of Sheffield University and a former international water polo player, joined Naylor 9 years ago. His first two years at Naylor were on Drainage sales; he then moved across to Naylor’s Gardenware division, being appointed Divisional Managing Director 2 years ago.
David has presided over a period of rapid growth in Naylor’s Gardenware business. Sales of Naylor’s Yorkshire Flowerpots- a range of British made frost-proof pots- have increased dramatically. In summer 2013, David oversaw the acquisition of Clough Mill, an importer of complementary top quality glazed Malaysian pots, which are being sold alongside Naylor’s Yorkshire range.
Naylor Chief Executive Edward Naylor commented “we are delighted that David’s hard work over recent years has received this external recognition”.
