Hi, my name is Adrian Sutton and I am the Managing director at FMP. I had the pleasure to join FMP in July 2018 and now form part of the senior leadership team on site in Lancaster. I have over 30 years of experience in medical device and pharma manufacturing, which will be used to support our people and company strategy and vision. I take a great deal of enjoyment from developing people so that they can meet potential challenges. Here at FMP we have a great family of employees, with a wealth of experience and dedication to the company, I look forward to working with them all and developing a successful and rewarding place to work.
I have worked at FMP since 2009. I started in a temporary role as a Sales Administrator before effectively working my way up through Customer Service to become part of the Senior Management Team as Sales & Marketing Manager in 2018. I enjoy the diversity of my role and the challenges that it brings.
I am Anthony Bateson, the Operations Manager at FMP. I began working in April 1990, so I have been at FMP for 30 years so far. Following 7 years of working in Production, I progressed through Planning to become the Production Manager. After 13 years as Production Manager I became Operations Manager 6 years ago. I have enjoyed managing a successful Production, Warehouse and Operations team in a company that has grown to a turnover of almost £14 million.
Hello my name is Wayne Fletcher and I am the Finance Manager at FMP. A qualified Chartered Accountant (CIMA), I joined the Company in 2015 as Business Improvement Manager and transitioned into the new role in 2020. My journey through the magical world of finance started in the automotive industry back in the eighties (yes I really am that old!), then wine and spirits (hic!), jumping from equestrian to oil and gas… and now my final resting place in medical. I have the spreadsheet scars to prove it. I am passionate about business and strive to make a difference and am proud to be part of an extremely good team here at FMP.
