Mr Yeoman, who has worked for the company for more than 20 years, has built a reputation as one of the top sales people in the business and has been a key figure in driving the timber systems division forward.

He started his career at the Stewart Milne Group as an apprentice technician and then moved to a sales role with Stewart Milne Home Options. Following a brief spell at Wimpey Homes and Robertson he returned to the company 10 years ago and was made sales director in 2004.

Loyalty Awards, introduced nearly 30 years ago, are given to employees for every 10-year spell with the company. With more than two decades at the Stewart Milne Group, this is Mr Yeoman’s second award.
