Daniel Earnshaw is Company CEO and the Director in charge of the Retail and Production sectors of the company. He is a business studies & marketing graduate with 30 years’ experience in the timber, retail and fencing sectors. A direct descendant of Job Earnshaw, he has been the driving force that has helped the business evolve into its current market position.
A keen sports fan Daniel loves his cricket, hockey and motorsport or is just as happy tinkering with his collection of classic cars and tractors.
Director in charge of Estates along with the Company’s woodland and forestry work, Peter Earnshaw is a graduate in Forestry from Bangor University and has worked for the company since 1980.
A keen countryman Peter combines his love of forestry and nature with outdoor pursuits and field sports. An ardent environmentalist Peter ensures all our forests and working practices are ‘green’ and was a key member in gaining the company’s FSC certification.
Bringing experience gained at Boots the Chemist, First Leisure PLC and then Kalon in HR, training and people management functions, Lynda Earnshaw joined the Earnshaws team in April 2018 as Head of HR. She now oversees the strategic planning, compliance and day to day staff management functions of the business. This includes recruitment, interviewing and inducting new staff. Lynda also ensures the team are well trained and motivated in order to deliver excellent service to customers.
When Lynda isn’t busy at one of our three centres she can often be found horse riding or spending time with her two girls, following their various sporting endeavours!
The latest addition to the Earnshaws team is Karen Earnshaw, who took over as Company Secretary and CFO in February 2019 to manage the company finances and administration. She is a fully qualified accountant with a superb working history in a number of companies, both large and small, latterly as a European Controller for a large global pharmaceutical business.
When she isn’t squaring accounts at Earnshaws, Karen likes to indulge her passion for travelling wherever possible, spend time with her family and assorted animals and attend yoga and pilates classes – to counteract the hours spent in front of the computer!
