New Commercial Director will strengthen Emanuel Whittaker team

Dec 3, 2012

Dave Prescott has joined Oldham based construction and regeneration company Emanuel Whittaker as Commercial Director.

Managing Director of Emanuel Whittaker Clive Newton said:  “We have been in negotiation with Dave for some time.  He is a well-known and well respected figure in the North West construction industry and we are delighted he has decided to join the team.”

At 43  Dave has over 26 years experience in the construction industry and is very much looking forward to working with a company which has been established for over 175 years.

“I have always been impressed with Emanuel Whittaker’s approach to customer service and the quality of work it consistently delivers,” he said.

“As one of the few remaining independent construction companies operating not just in the region but in the country, Emanuel Whittaker is able to retain traditional values such as integrity, honesty and excellence and as such enjoys an enviable reputation.  I am very much looking forward to becoming a part of that.”

Emanuel Whittaker was established in 1837 and today is a specialist in the field of public sector regeneration, refurbishment, construction and conversion.  It employs around 140 staff from its Oldham head office base and is a keen advocate of apprenticeships – this year alone it has employed nine young people to train in various construction industry jobs.

Dave joins Emanuel Whittaker at the end of a major anniversary year during which time the company has not only managed to retain its loyal customer base but also developed relationships with new clients in the social housing sector including Symphony Housing Group, Rochdale Boroughwide Housing, Your Housing Group and Six Town Housing.

Contracts Director John Gallagher added:  “Dave’s appointment will strengthen our management team.  In his new role he will help maintain our existing customer base as well as assist the company to expand into new markets in the construction sector so that our business continues to develop and grow.”
