Ridgeons has appointed Adam Thompson, pictured left, and Mark Johnson, right, as the managers of the company's new Norman Way branch – set to open around Easter 2018 – and renovated Nuffield Road branch, respectively.

Thompson currently heads up the company's Cromwell Road branch, which is set to close in April next year, and will take the majority of the branch's current workforce with him, Ridgeons said. He first joined Ridgeons on a work experience placement which he completed in 2003, and went on to become a counter sales assistant before working his way up through supervisory and managerial roles.

Johnson joined Ridgeons in 2010 as branch manager for the former Independent Living brand in Cambridge. He then became manager of the Peterborough branch before professing to operations manager at Nuffield Road in 2012.

“Both Adam and Mark are two of the most talented and dedicated members of the Ridgeons team; we are delighted that they will be leading branches that are of great importance to the Ridgeon Group,” said Ridgeons Group operations director Richard Gray.

“We believe the appointments underline our commitment to offering the opportunities to our staff to grow within our business, rewarding our brightest and best. Ridgeons is always looking for ways to grow, but at our core we remain a loyal, independent, family business and Adam and Mark are very much part of the Ridgeons family.”
