We kick off the 2020 Glasgow Talks season by welcoming Jon Stanton, Chief Executive Officer of The Weir Group.
The Weir Group PLC is a 148-year old Glasgow-based engineering business with 15,000 employees operating in more than 50 countries.
Since becoming CEO in 2016, Jon has focused on building on Weir’s strength as a leading provider of highly engineered mining solutions. This has included the largest acquisition in Weir’s history with the 2018 purchase of ESCO Corporation, a global leader in ground engaging tools for large mining machines. As a result, around 75% of Weir’s revenues are now generated from its mining-focused divisions.
Jon first joined Weir as Group Finance Director in 2010 having previously been a partner with EY where he led global board-level relationships with a number of FTSE-100 multi-national companies. In May 2019 he joined the Board of Imperial Brands as a Non-Executive Director.
