Grant Westfield, the UK’s leading manufacturer of wall panels, and the company behind best-selling panel brand Multipanel, has appointed John Mortimer as its new Managing Director.

Formerly Sales Director, John joined Grant Westfield in 2019 from Formica Group, and has spent the past four years leading the Sales and Marketing teams. Under John, Grant Westfield launched the first ever tile-effect wall panel to be both Made in Britain and FSC©-certified, and established Multipanel as the modern alternative to tiles.

I’m honoured to have been given the opportunity to lead Grant Westfield. The business has a great heritage, brilliant people, fantastic customers and a very exciting future. Through the Multipanel brand, Grant Westfield continues to disrupt the waterproof wall covering market, and with plans for more innovative and trend led product development, it is an incredibly exciting time for the business, and I’m delighted to lead the business into its next phase of growth

Multipanel bathroom wall panels provide a 100% waterproof surface, they don’t require grout, they are quicker to install, and they last longer—all without compromising on style. They are a modern and sustainable alternative to traditional tiles: using bathroom panels instead of tiles saves on average 15 installation hours per bathroom and positively contributes to accelerating home completion timescales, as well as reducing snagging issues
