Name: Mark Murphy
Job Title: Group Integrated Systems Manager
Company: James Donaldson & Sons
Mark isn't only a valued member of the JDS team, he's also a very loyal one. So loyal in fact that (as he likes to point out) he was in the company before the internet was even invented!
He's had a varied career within the JDS group, having started as a business trainee. Now, as the Integrated Systems Manager, he looks after some essential business for the group, including health and safety, quality, FSC and PEFC schemes and environmental policies.
What Mark loves about Donaldson’s is that he gets to work with some amazing people at all levels within the business. Mark commented that he likes that "everybody has the opportunity to contribute and the best ideas happen when people get involved." It is this collaboration in fact, that helped JDS win the Lord Cullen award for health and safety. Mark is very proud that he and the team implemented a system to make the unloading of roof trusses safer for our customers, which was adopted as best practice by the HSE and the Trussed Rafter industry.
In Mark's role, he ensures that JDS always act with Integrity. For him, that runs across many factors, from the way we treat people, source our products, comply with legislation, sell, produce or deliver our products. Mark feels he can therefore say with confidence that we conduct our business in the right way.
Outside of work, Mark can be found walking his three rottweiler dogs - in fact he loves the breed so much he even has a Facebook group for rottweilers. We're lucky that Mark is as loyal to us as his lovely dogs are to him!
