Turton has been an integral part of Elite Group over the last 20 years. Having started his career with the company as a graduate, he progressed quickly working in roles within all departments.

With close to 20 years’ experience in the sector working exclusively for Elite Group (and associated group companies), Adam’s appointment is the culmination of all his hard work and dedication to the company. His appointment reflects positively on Elite as an employer that nurtures talent and rewards loyalty, commitment and hard work.”

Above this, my appointment is a fantastic opportunity to bring real value and have a lasting positive impact on the lives of our people, customers and the communities within which we work and live. I have ambitious growth plans for the business and am really excited about the future.”
