Stephen Harris, Bodycote CEO to Step Down

This news item goes hand in hand with the release on this page about Bodycote’s Trading Update for the first 4 months of 2023. “Bodycote said Wednesday that Chief Executive Officer Stephen Harris will retire next year and that revenue rose for the four-month period ended April 30 as it backed its guidance for the year. The London-listed provider of heat-treatment and thermal-processing services said Harris will step down following an orderly transition to his successor, and that a formal recruiting process will start.”

A number of years ago Gord Montgomery of “The Monty Heat Treat News” had the priviledge of interviewing Mr. Harris, that interview can still be found at We found Mr. Harris to be very open and candid in the interview, far more than you would expect of the CEO of a billion dollar company. This interview remains the most viewed of any that we have done in the past 30 years.
