Succession is arguably the most important decision you’ll face as a Family Business owner. Getting it right will help ensure your firm’s longevity; getting it wrong could put it all at risk. Steve has definitely fought hard over the years to keep the company going through very tough times, but his drive, determination and commitment to keep the staff employed within a secure job and service our valued customers has kept Hilltop Products at the Top!

It is now time for him to take a step back into a more part-time ambassadorial role for Hilltop ongoing and appoint Rebecca Davies as the new Managing Director of Hilltop Products Ltd.

A few words from Steve “Having been in charge more years than I care to recall, handing over the responsibility of Managing Director of Hilltop Products was always likely to be a little difficult for Me, it has been such an integral part of my adult life. However, I am incredibly fortuitous to have waiting in the wings My highly experienced and very talented Daughter Rebecca. Having herself come through the ranks within Hilltop, I remain immensely proud of her knowledge, passion and commitment to the business, I genuinely could not wish nor indeed think of anyone better suited or qualified to take over the responsibility of Managing Director. Having surrounded herself with an equally talented and dedicated team, I wish her all the very best in her new well deserved role. I look forward to watching her develop her own style and ideas, yet remain highly confident that the business of now over 40yrs will continue to grow and flourish under Rebecca’s stewardship”.

The transition has been in the process for around a year now but the time, planning and effort has of course taken much longer. The Business itself has some exciting new changes to come in 2022 and will be looking at future-proofing all areas of the business including a new website, MRP and CRM systems along with all areas of continuous improvements being implemented. 

Rebecca added “ I am really looking forward to my newly appointed position as Managing Director of Hilltop Products, having worked for Hilltop for over 18 years it’s a huge honour to be able to take over the reins from Steve who has been the main force behind where Hilltop is today, making this position much easier for me to take on.

I would like to wish Steve the best of luck in taking that well deserved step back after being in charge of Hilltop for many years, I am committed to continuing the growth and development of the business moving forward, and I am extremely passionate about ensuring we continue to keep our high-quality service ongoing.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our valued customers and suppliers for their continued support over the years, and look forward to working with them for many more!

All the best of luck to Rebecca in her newly appointed role as Managing Director, I am sure she will continue making the future of Hilltop as good a success as the past!
