Charcon appoints new national specification manager

Published:  11 August, 2016

Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has appointed Clinton Young to the role of national specification manager.

Mr Young joins the business after 21 years with Marshalls, where he was pivotal in the growth of specifications in London and the South East, including project managing Marshalls’ specification and supply of £10m of landscaping products to the London Olympics.

In his new role, he will be responsible for growing the specification business, including building relationships with key customers, advising on and delivering best practice and further developing the experienced team.

In addition to a national specification manager, Charcon has also recruited two further territory sales managers. Rachel Thurman, who covers the Wales and West Midlands region, and Martin Mullan, who covers the London and South East region.

Mark Barter, Sales Director at Charcon, comments: “We are thrilled to welcome Mr Young to the team. He’s got huge credibility in the sector, with clients and trade bodies alike, and we’re very excited about the experience, fresh thinking and best practice he’s already bringing to our team. We’re also delighted to grow the sales team with the recruitment of Ms Thurman and Mr Mullan.”
