Remi Suzan succeeds Iain Thomson who has been MD of the London-headquartered company for 10 years but has now been appointed chairman.  

Suzan has been with Gratte Brothers for 20 years, with the last five working alongside Thomson to prepare for the handover.  

And while no radical changes will be made to operations or output, growing talent, engineering competency, digitalisation, pre-fabrication, and building out sustainability credentials will be paramount under Suzan’s leadership, said the company.  

Thomson said: “Remi and I have worked together over the last five years to manage this transition, it is with great confidence that I hand over the reins to a leader with such a positive and forward-looking vision for the company.” 

David Gratte, group managing director, added: “On behalf of the Gratte Brothers Group board, I would firstly like to thank Iain for the dedication and loyalty he has shown to the business as MD over the past 10 years.  

“Gratte Brothers Limited is the business it is today because of his vision and leadership, and we are therefore delighted that he will remain as chairman.  

“As Remi takes over leadership of Gratte Brothers Limited, he does so with the full support of the group, and I have no doubt that he will continue to drive the business forward.  

“Remi has more than proven his ability to lead during this transition and brings with him a unique blend of technical knowledge, approachability as well as a progressive and positive vision for the future. These are all fantastic qualities for a leader.”
