Mark Bartlett, Chief Executive of Strix Group plc, has been with the Group since 2006. His leadership ethos is built around being able to adapt to every situation believing that one size does not fit all. This leadership style has enabled the business to realise its potential and place it in the position to continue its global growth trajectory.
Mark has been able to blend his technical background and business experience to ensure his competencies allow him to fully understand the complex interdependencies of the business. He has held various positions ranging from Engineering Director through to Managing Director for multinationals in Europe and the US. It is this experience, coupled with Marks calm demeanor that set the scene for the company’s next growth chapter. Having held the position of CCO prior to taking the helm he was able to set a clear strategic direction, enhancing the business dynamics and expanding the global operations. The Company is a market leader in the design, manufacture and supply of kettle safety controls and other components, working with some of the biggest brands and large multinationals in the industry, across Europe, Asia and North America.
In August 2017, Mark led the Group through a public listing on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange with Strix raising £190m at the time of the flotation. Mark’s long-term vision was always to diversify the Group’s revenue streams and the listing allowed further investment in Research & Development capabilities. This enhanced the profile of the business, helped defend market share and provided opportunities for future growth whilst creating significant value for investors.
