Former apprentice climbs ranks to become new Lindum director

6th February 2018

A former Lindum apprentice has been appointed a Director of the company’s BMS division.

Richard Shaw has worked at Lindum since 1988, when he joined on a Government Youth Training Scheme aged just 18.

He trained as a joiner and completed an apprenticeship through Lincoln College before working in the Lindum Joinery division with a team of experienced craftsmen for six years.

Richard then moved over to the BMS division, where he worked in a variety of roles, including site Foreman and Contracts Manager.

During his career at Lindum, Richard has overseen many projects, including, more recently, the new Richmond Medical Centre in North Hykeham, the redevelopment of the OneNK Centre and the installation of a new reception at the Usher Art Gallery.

His Directorship was approved at the recent Group Executive Board Meeting (held on Friday 26 January). 

Richard, who lives in North Hykeham with his wife Kathryn and daughters Caitlin (14) and Kerrin (7), grew up around Lincoln. He attended Branston School and Community College and worked briefly in a window manufacturing factory before joining Lindum.

He said: “When I joined the company, I didn’t ever think I would be here 29 years later. In fact, I wasn’t sure I’d even get the job as I’d failed woodwork at school.

“But the support and training that I’ve been given has allowed me to enjoy a varied and fulfilling career and

I’m delighted to have been given a Directorship at Lindum.”

Richard is a members of the Lindum ‘Sock Club’, which is made up of past and present employees who have given at least 25 years of service to the business.

Lindum Group Chairman, David Chambers, said “Richard has shown considerable commitment and loyalty to our business and has been an integral part of BMS's management team and success for a number of years

“We would like to congratulate him and we wish him continued success here at Lindum.”
