Leading national independent surfacing contractor Toppesfield Ltd has today announced the appointment of Bill Pryor to Managing Director, as Matthew Pryor steps into the role of Chairman.

Matthew Pryor has been at the helm of Toppesfield since founding the company in 2004. The company has grown and transformed over the last 17 years into an organisation that now employs over 250 people with a turnover of £80m and has still managed to keep the Toppesfield family spirit at the heart of the organisation. Bill Pryor joined Toppesfield in 2013 and moves from his current role as Commercial Director.

Matthew Pryor, Chairman commented “Next month will mark 17 years since I started this business and with the help of my great team we have built a brilliant and successful company.

Now is the right time to implement the next stage of this ongoing development process.  With immediate effect, I shall become Chairman of the business to allow my senior management team to have full control of the day-to-day activities. Bill has revolutionised the Commercial team during his time as Commercial Director, making it integral to all that we do across the business. I look forward to seeing Toppesfield continue to go from strength to strength under Bill’s leadership.

I will continue to be very involved and will also continue to focus on strategic business development and sales.  However, after 17 years of running the business, which I have thoroughly enjoyed, it feels completely right to take this next step for me and most importantly, for the business”.

Bill Pryor, Managing Director commented “Toppesfield are uniquely positioned within the Surfacing Industry, bringing the best solutions, the best innovations and most importantly the best people to match our clients’ delivery needs.  After 17 years in operation, the ‘Toppesfield Family’ culture that is present throughout the business is extremely humbling, and I am excited to lead Toppesfield through the next stage of its journey”.
