MANCHESTER, UK — HMG Paints has appointed Steve Hutton to the company’s Board of Directors. This marks the second appointment to the board in the company’s 90th year of business, with Jonathan Falder joining the board in January.

Hutton joined HMG Paints in 2001 and is the third generation of the Hutton family to work at HMG. He is the second member of the family to be appointed as a Director and joins the board exactly six years after his father Len Hutton, who is the Production Director.

“The people of HMG are what makes HMG the company it is. We are extremely proud that generations of families have worked at HMG, and I’m delighted to welcome Steve to the board of HMG,” said John Falder, Managing Director. “It is very true that we are custodians of the business for the next generation who are going to create something better. I believe the young people that we invest in today will go on to have long careers and lead HMG Paints in the future and the appointments of Steve and Jonathan are testament to that.”

Steve Hutton is also in the final stages of his postgraduate Doctorate of Philosophy (DPhil) at Lancaster University where he also completed his MSC in 2016. He has experience with many HMG departments, including the Colour Laboratory, Quality Control, several manufacturing departments, Warehousing and Logistics, and then more recently, Production Planning, giving him the background and experience for this new role.
