“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Cotswold so far,” said Yvonne. “I’ve been made to feel amazingly welcome, and I love the variety. In this role, I touch on all the different areas I’ve worked on in my previous career. It’s hugely gratifying to be helping Cotswold as it embarks on this exciting new phase in its history.”

“Yvonne will play a critically important role as we seek to grow and develop Cotswold, and pursue excellence in everything we do. I want to thank her for her hard work so far, and look forward to working with her closely in the months and years ahead.” For more information about Cotswold Architectural Products, email or visit
