Dave Manser Appointed Director at Witley Jones Furniture 

Witley Jones Furniture Directors

Witley Jones are proud to announce the appointment of Dave Manser as Director. With over 16 years of dedicated service to the company, Dave’s journey from the shop floor to the senior management team exemplifies the company’s commitment to nurturing talent and fostering internal growth.

Dave’s career journey at Witley Jones is a testament to his hardwork and dedication. Back in 2008 he began working in the machine shop, which led to time working with colleagues on the assembly benches, and out on site as part of our installation teams. In 2014, Dave’s time was split between the drawing office (providing 2D and 3D visuals to customers) and installations, enhancing product knowledge further and developing an understanding of pre-production processes. 

With a customer-centric approach and a wealth of experience in taking a furniture design idea through to production and fitting, Dave was promoted to Business Development Manager in 2017 to aid the growth of the company alongside Simon Downes, Matt Jones and Lucy Jones. 

Chris Jones, Chairman of Witley Jones, congratulated Dave, stating, “Dave’s journey with Witley Jones is testament to his commitment and dedication to supporting our clients and working closely with our team to produce high-quality bespoke school furniture. Dave is the perfect example of building a family business that focuses on developing our own people, an ethos we have instilled in the business since the very beginning. 

“His wealth of experience, combined with understanding of our clients’ needs, makes him an invaluable addition to our senior leadership team.”

Dave added, “A lot of positive change has happened here at Witley Jones in the 16 years I’ve been here. I look forward to working with my fellow Directors here to impact further growth and change, as the years go by. 

Our customers value our family values, reputation and quality of product and we’ll never lose sight of that as we continue to be forward thinking. I’m really looking forward to the challenge and the future.”

Dave Manser’s appointment as Director signifies a new chapter for Witley Jones, underlining the company’s commitment to fostering talent and recognising the contributions of our dedicated employees.
