NSG Group Appoints Lyons CFO

May 4, 2011

The board of NSG Group has announced the appointment of Mark Lyons as chief financial officer (finance director). Lyons, who has been president of Building Products Worldwide since 2007, replaces Mike Powell, who has chosen a senior appointment outside the company.

In his new position, Lyons will have identical responsibilities to those of the group finance director, with overall responsibility for all aspects of the work of the group’s Finance function, including corporate, operational, and business line finance. The company is taking this opportunity to change the job title to bring it into line with international practice and to underline the global nature of the NSG Group. Mark Lyons will be based in the UK and Japan, and will report to Craig Naylor, president and CEO.

“Mark Lyons has led our Building Products business over the past four years,” Naylor said. “He brings to the job of CFO considerable experience in both finance and general management at a senior level within the glass industry, and is already well-known in the financial community. His experience will be invaluable in the implementation of our Strategic Management Plan and beyond.”
