Double Director Promotion


Norstead is delighted to announce the promotion of Dan Hopkins to Operations Director and Jonathan Grant to Commercial Director. These key promotions support Norstead’s ambitious plans for growth, demonstrating its commitment to investing in talent and expanding the business on the back of a number of new client wins. The firm has also recently welcomed three new recruits to bolster their operational and commercial teams.

Dan Hopkins joined the firm over 25 years ago as a junior engineer and has worked his way up through the ranks. His new role as Operations Director will see Dan drive the business in its next phase of growth to be more client focused as well as developing the next generation of engineers and apprentices. He’ll also be responsible for joint ventures with Metnor Construction and embedding new working practices.

Jonathan Grant, who originates from High Spen joined Norstead a year ago bringing with him a wealth of experience from working as a main contractor for well known North East and national construction firms.  With a strong client facing role, he has been instrumental in developing more transparent control measures which set Norstead apart from its competition. Most recently his main focus has been ensuring the company could operate safely in a Covid compliant manner.

While it’s been a challenging time for all businesses, it’s important we continue to plan for tomorrow and invest in our people. Ensuring we develop future leadership signals the confidence and commitment we have in the market and these promotions reflect the importance we place on delivering the very best service possible to our clients. We’ve got a strong order book as we go into 2021 and beyond and I’m optimistic about the year ahead.”
