BRISTOL: Burdens has announced the appointment of Chris Briginshaw as group marketing director.

He joined Burdens straight from school in 1984, working on the trade counter at the Heaviside Drainage depot in Keynsham, Bristol.

He progressed rapidly and, on his 21st birthday, was made manager of the Culvers Road depot in Keynsham, subsequently managing the Swindon and Cinderford depots. Directorships followed: initially as regional director south west and later on as regional director Wales and the West when the two regions were combined.

During his 25 years with the group, he has resisted other offers of alternative employment
