Mark Yates

Manufacturing Director - Ibstock Concrete

Mark Yates - Supreme Concrete Manufacturing Director

Mark is passionate about British manufacturing and developing people to achieve a common goal. His role within Ibstock's Concrete Division, enables him to do both of these.

If Mark could steal someone's job for the day, it would be the Prime Minister! He would love to see more investment in British industry and high quality manufacturing, rather than the race to be the service sector of the world. 

Outside of work, Mark loves watching sport, in particular football and cricket. He is an avid Blackburn Rovers fan and has a membership at Trent Bridge, where he enjoys watching the T20 cricket. 

One piece of advice that has always stuck with Mark is 'you get a free brain with every employee, it's up to you what degree you choose to utilise it. People are everything in any business'.
