Ray Evans – Treasurer

Posted: September 16th, 2015

RAY EVANS started at Mirror Group in 1968 as a clerk in the transport department, and later became supervisor in a new venture, Leisure Services, where all the then group’s “other” activities were merged into one.

After much chopping and changing of activities Ray was made budgetary controller of a renamed business services department, part of a two-pronged administration division which, ultimately, under Maxwell, became a single division called “operations”. Later, it morphed into Maxwell Building Enterprises Ltd. It serviced the entire Maxwell empire and Ray was appointed chief accountant.

Ray worked within management accounts until 1990 when he was promoted to head of group purchasing (non-production). After a short spell in internal audit, in 1997 Ray was assigned to group newsprint. He became group newsprint controller in 2006, where he stayed until his retirement in 2014.

Ray became a Freeman of the City of London in 2009. He’s been married to Lin for more than 45 years and has a son, a daughter and two grandchildren. His interests are golf, gardening, travel, rugby, and Arsenal FC, and he’s and a keen day trader in foreign exchange and equities.
