About the Founders
Our founders have more than just one thing in common, but above all else, it’s their love for Huddersfield Town FC that brought them together — as they’re both active Club Partners.
Mark Young, Managing Director of John Walton Machine Tools
“I’ve been in Manufacturing since 1984 when I joined my grandfather, John Walton, in his specialist Workholding business, which at the time had been trading for some 10 years. I have cut my teeth designing special solutions for our customers to save time, improve product quality and add innovative ideas to their manufacturing process. My experience extends to many sectors including Aerospace, Energy, Oil and Gas, Automotive, Medical, Defence, Motorsport — and I have a real passion for engineering.”
Neil Worthington Founder of Worthington Brown
“I started Worthington Brown, a graphic design, advertising and marketing agency 30 years ago, almost as soon I left college. We got a grant from The Prince’s Trust, making us one of Prince Charles’ protégés – and we pretty much grew from there. Over the years we managed to build up to an international level and at one point had offices in Hangzhou, China.
“We’re responsible for the graphic design side of the business and the marketing. But we also have a sister company called Hollywood Agency that’s purely focused on PR and social media.”
