Managing Director, Vertix Systems Ltd
Christine joined Resource as MD of Isoclad and Securiclad in 2019, having previously worked for Catnic, a large building products manufacturer for 35 years. Christine had been Catnic’s MD since 2008, at a time when the housebuilding market suffered a significant downturn resulting in the business’s sales volumes falling by circa 45%. She steered the business, trebling Catnic’s profitability, which in turn led to a string of business accolades.
On 1st May 2023, Christine passed the baton of the two manufacturing businesses to Rob Palmer, her Finance Director, to focus on the launch of a new company within the Resource family, Vertix Systems. The Vertix team, based at the company’s Monmouth manufacturing site, will produce high quality bespoke roofing systems suitable for both the commercial and domestic market. Vertix has taken centuries old metal standing seam roofing and applied 21st century materials, design, and manufacturing technologies to deliver a high quality and affordable alternative to traditional slate and tile roof finishes.
Christine is focussed on the multiple opportunities that Vertix Systems will offer, and is already embedding the new team for its future growth, positioning it as a future industry leader and ensuring its long-term sustainability in a rapidly changing business landscape.
