McMillan joins James Jones

Published:  26 October, 2011

STIRLINGSHIRE: James Jones & Sons, the independent sawmillers and processors of British timber, has welcomed Gillian McMillan to the company as its marketing manager. 

Ms McMillan, who holds a masters degree in marketing, worked in the hospitality industry and in academia before joining James Jones. She will be based at the company's head office in Larbert.

Graham Blyth, senior manager sales, commented: "The creation of this position consolidates the group's marketing activities and follows the recent £25m investment in the new sawline at Lockerbie, significant additional capital expenditure in secondary processing and the group's continued focus on enhancing its range of products and services. This role will be especially important as we introduce and promote new products to market during 2012." 

Ms McMillan added: "I look forward to taking up the challenge of marketing the company's increasing range of timber and timber-based products and services."
