RS Clare has appointed David Meadows as its managing director.

David is now the sixth generation of Meadows’ to be appointed managing director in the company’s 274-year history.

Before undertaking the new role, he was the director of marketing and communications.


David takes the reins from Paul Vann at the global manufacturer of advanced lubricants and high-performance greases.

Under Paul’s leadership, the business saw six years of consistent growth. Its 2020 financial results reflected the incremental growth and achievements of the previous five years, reporting record turnover and profits.

RS Clare says David will continue to build on this performance, with significant plans for strategic investment to maintain a focus on innovation to achieve continued growth in key markets.

It adds that David’s role as director of marketing and communications has afforded him a deep understanding of RS Clare’s customers in each of the business’s core markets and the challenges they face. In addition, his position within the company’s executive board has seen him support the development of overall strategic direction.

As well as his commercial background, David brings technical know-how, having achieved a master’s degree in chemical engineering from Manchester University.

He said: “It’s a huge honour for me to lead this historic and pioneering private family business. 

“I’m excited to be inheriting a very talented team of employees, a global customer base and a supportive and ambitious board to help us achieve further success.”
