M&M Timber make changes at board level

by | Feb 17, 2016 | News | 0 comments

M&M Timber has announced a series of senior board appointments. This is part of what the company has called: ?Major operational changes designed to take the company to the next level of its development in the increasingly competitive timber products market?.

A company spokesperson said: ?Since the company?s acquisition by the Forest Garden Group two years ago, sales in both agricultural and landscaping timber channels have seen considerable growth under the direction of business development manager, Fraser Hall. He now joins the board as sales director. Recognising Fraser?s achievements to date, Forest Garden is looking to continue bringing in both new customers and markets to the division.?

Group chief executive, Guy Grainger, paid tribute to former owner of M&M Timber, Nigel Poyner. He said: ?Following the sale of M&M Timber?s assets to the Forest Group, Nigel has worked tirelessly as managing director to help integrate the business into the group.?

?Having done this, it is now time for an executive team to take the division on to the next stage in its development. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nigel for his considerable support, hard work and commitment that he has given to both the group and the M&M integration project over the last two years.?

Continuing in his current role of group engineering and projects director, Mark Dayson is to extend his focus on improving M&M?s productivity and processes as well as taking responsibility for divisional operational structure. Mark will also oversee the ?significant capital investment? projects planned for M&M Timber over the next two years.

Richard Sadler meanwhile, remains as group business development director, but will take on the added responsibility for internal sales and marketing at M&M. Working alongside Fraser Hall, Richard will accelerate the planned development of the sales office into a proactive internal selling arm of this division.
