My name is David Williams, 47 years old and I am Managing Director of SSAB GreenCoat UK. I joined the company in 2008 as a Regional Sales Manager and was promoted to my current position in 2018. Prior to this I have worked within the steel industry since 1993 and specifically within the colour coated steel and building sector since 2002. I originate from Stoke on Trent and being born in a city with a proud industrial heritage I have always been interested in manufacturing. Since working in the colour coated steel sector I have become more interested in architecture and building construction. This has developed even further with the advent of SSAB’s GreenCoat brand and because of this I now have the opportunity to really work closely with architects, designers and contractors. My other passion in business is to work with the topic of sustainability and luckily for me this fits in exactly with what SSAB are setting out to achieve. Being able to contribute to our Hybrit Fossil and CO2 Free Steel Project is both incredibly exciting and a once in a lifetime opportunity to create something that will change the world in which we live.
Outside of work I am celebrating my Silver Wedding Anniversary this year and I am the very proud father of two daughters who are both at university. My other great passion is cycling and in particular road racing which is something I have been involved in since childhood.
