M&M Timber announces board appointments

Published:  16 February, 2016

M&M Timber has announced a series of senior board appointments as part of major operational changes designed to take the company to the next level of its development in the increasingly competitive timber products market.

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, who now joins the board as sales director.

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. Mr Dayson will also oversee the significant capital investment projects planned for M&M Timber over the next two years.

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

Guy Grainger, group chief executive, said: “The new executive team will support the smooth transition of M&M Timber to the next stage in its development and demonstrate the groups ongoing support and commitment to the division, which this year will receive a further £1m of capital investment.”
