Ben CottamManaging Director / CEO
Cottam is a family company and as such I've been around the business all my life. Starting in a professional capacity in 2002 as an Engineering graduate I’ve been MD since 2005.
Our business was founded back in 1858 by Samuel Cottam (my great great great grandfather) and I’m now the 6th generation of the family at the helm. Amazingly we have 3 generations on our Board of Directors right now.
We moved to our fantastic new factory in 2007 and it’s as fresh now as the day we moved in. We love to show off what we do so please come and have a look.
My job now is to ensure that we grow the business; with a great team and a strong plan in place we're already on our way. Whether you are working with our Technical Solutions, Brushware Supplies or Supply Chain Management team I hope that you find us friendly, innovative, and open for business.
Outside work I love to spend time with my wife Jennifer and my two boys Frank and Max.
I enjoy my job and I'm always happy to chat about collaboration opportunities, business ideas and of course, brushes! My contact details are below or you can catch me on twitter @cottam_ben.
