New branch manager for Gibbs & Dandy

Published:  05 March, 2012

LEICESTER: The Leicester branch of building supplies expert, Gibbs & Dandy, has a new Branch Manager, as Scott Beardsmore takes the helm with immediate effect.

Reporting directly to the operations and sales director, Mr Beardsmore joins the Gibbs & Dandy network after 11years with Travis Perkins.

Having previously occupied managerial roles at Travis Perkins’ Hinckley, Loughborough and Narborough branches, Mr Beardsmore now hopes to apply his wealth of experience to the Gibbs & Dandy branch in Leicester.

Commenting on his new position, Mr Beardsmore said: “Much of my past 11years experience has been within the generalist and tool hire market, so whilst I’m hoping to gain specialist knowledge at Gibbs & Dandy, within new industry sectors, I also hope to share the expertise I’ve acquired to boost the branch’s business.

“The branch underwent a significant refurbishment last year, which saw a traffic flow, loading and parking system added, as well as improved outdoor and indoor display areas. I’m very grateful to be taking charge of a branch that has already received an impressive amount of investment and hope to further its success in 2012.

“As for the larger picture, I’m delighted to be joining a builders’ merchant with a long-standing, well-respected reputation within the industry and one that is continually looking to develop itself and improve its offering for all customers.”
