Martin McCrimmon

CMS  director wins IoD Scotland award


CMS Group support services director Martin McCrimmon has been named the 2020 Institute of Directors (IoD) Scotland Director of the Year – 'Social Value & Sustainability Impact' at this year’s virtual awards ceremony, in recognition of his achievements in delivering the company’s pioneering sustainability strategy over the past 14 years.


In winning the inaugural ‘Social Value & Sustainability Impact’ award, sponsored by Zero Waste Scotland, McCrimmon has triumphed in a category that aims to honour the most ethical, socially responsible or ‘green’ business leaders in Scotland and the UK.


The IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards judges said: "Martin clearly demonstrates a real passion for achieving environmental targets and social impact and has proven how financial and business success can go hand in hand with environmental sustainability. He shows strong evidence of leadership and strategic decision-making. Martin is driven by ethics and values, with investment in supporting young people and excluded groups into employment. Martin has clearly placed a specific focus on achieving sustainable growth, including through the employment of a full-time environmental advisor.”


McCrimmon is directly responsible for CMS’s sustainability strategy. Supported by a team which includes a full time in-house environmental advisor, Amy Ledger, this strategy has pioneered new approaches to how a window, door and curtain walling manufacturing and installation business can operate. The result has been to minimise its carbon footprint and protect and enhance its local environment, whilst providing customers with dependable solutions that enable them to reach their own sustainability targets.


David Ritchie, CEO of the CMS Group says: “Huge congratulations to Martin winning this new IoD Scotland award, which is very well deserved. His innovative thinking has enabled CMS to make a difference in so many areas of social and environmental sustainability, including putting in place the processes and facilities that are vital to ensure we can continuously reduce our resource use across both our manufacturing and installation operations.”


Based at Castlecary near Glasgow, with an additional production facility in East Kilbride, the CMS Group is one of the UK’s leading designers, manufacturers and installers of curtain walling, windows and doors. It operates under three divisions: CMS Facades, providing curtain walling solutions UK-wide, CMS Window Systems supplying housebuilders and delivering social housing refurbishment contracts, and CMS Trade, a manufacturer of REHAU windows and doors for trade installers.
