ROCKWOOL has appointed Nick Wilson as managing director to lead the insulation manufacturer across the UK and Irish markets, using his 20 years’ experience the industrial, appliance and heating sectors.

He joins at a critical moment for energy efficiency, with the cost-of-living crisis having tipped an estimated 3.1 million households in England into fuel poverty. Meanwhile the Climate Change Committee’s most recent Progress Report to Parliament called for a “sustained push” on energy efficiency, bringing pressure on the government to accelerate retrofitting rates to reduce bills and carbon emissions.

Rafael Rodriguez, senior vice president at ROCKWOOL Group, said: “Nick is a proven leader with exceptional commercial and operational acumen. We are delighted that he will drive the company’s efforts through a period of heightened need for both energy efficiency and fire safety solutions in the UK and Ireland, whilst also championing our own sustainability goals.”

Commenting on his appointment, Nick added: “This is a pivotal moment in the path to net zero and I am delighted to be working with ROCKWOOL’s dedicated teams to continue our long legacy of stone wool production in Bridgend. I have been hugely impressed by everyone’s passion for our products and I look forward to working together with our customers to meet the UK and Ireland’s thermal, acoustic and non-combustible insulation needs.”
