New role for Beaverbrooks chairman

Chairman of multiple jewellery retailer Beaverbrooks Mark Adlestone has been appointed as the new deputy lieutenant for Greater Manchester.

Adlestone, who was recognised for his philanthropic values on the Queen’s birthday honours list 2015 and awarded an OBE for his services to business and charity in the north of England, was officially appointed to the position on Tuesday March 14, 2017.

The commission means that Adlestone will now assist the lord-lieutenant in carrying out his role as the Queen’s representative in Greater Manchester. Based on his exemplary role within the community, Adlestone may be required to help with the Honours nominations, assessments for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services, suggesting names for royal garden parties and participation in citizenship ceremonies.

Commenting on the appointment, Adlestone said: “I am proud and honoured and see this appointment as a great reflection on our wonderful company, as well as the work of The Fed, the leading social and welfare organisation within the Jewish community of Greater Manchester, of which I am chairman.

“This is a wonderful and exciting opportunity for me and I look forward to developing my involvement within the community and from time to time undertaking public duties on behalf of the lord-lieutenant of Greater Manchester.”

Since 2000, the Lancashire-based retailer has donated more than £11 million to worthy causes and has been named in ‘The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For’ for 14 consecutive years.
