Jon Mortimore (pictured top) joins Wilsonart UK as its new Project Manager for bathroom brands to provide structure and alignment to the product development of the company’s fastest-growing category in Europe. Starting out as a product manager in the food packaging industry, Jon’s career rapidly evolved towards more commercial roles that have led him to having full responsibility for top European accounts at Plastico.

Based in Wellingborough and working closely alongside the marketing team, Jon will be responsible for managing the introduction of expanded product lines and continued growth for this sector of the company.

“Jon joins us with wide experience in project management, which will greatly benefit Wilsonart brands across Europe as we continue to expand and develop in both the commercial and residential bathroom sectors. We’re pleased to welcome him to the Wilsonart family.” says Neil Horton, Sales Director at Wilsonart UK.
