Luxury furniture group Canburg Limited – owner of Smallbone of Devizes, Mark Wilkinson Furniture, and Brookmans – has appointed Ian Gray, pictured, as its new executive chairman following the departure of CEO Leo Caplan.

Gray, who has been working with the company for several months in a non-executive chairman role, is currently chairman of independent pharmacy support group Avicenna Holdings, and factual documentary film company Atlantic Productions.

“I am excited to be a part of such a great British business,” said Gray. “We are leaders in the design and manufacture of luxury and bespoke cabinetry, produced in England and made by skilled artisans. The business currently has the largest order book in our history, at £45m, reflecting our success not only in the UK, but around the world and particularly in the prestigious New York residential developer market.”

The board acknowledged the contribution that Caplan made to the company over the past nine years.
