Mark Bone appointed as commercial director of Lords Builders Merchants

Published:  14 October, 2016

Lords Builders Merchants has appointed Mark Bone as its commercial director.

Mr Bone had sold George Lines to Lords in January, and remained with the business during the hand over. However, with the company’s expansion plans, it became apparent to chief executive Shanker Patel that Lords could utilise Mr Bone’s considerable experience, knowledge and industry connections to its benefit.

Mr Bone will be responsible for group supplier and customer relationships representing both brands within in the industry. This appointment comes at a busy time for the Lords Group as it is undertaking several large scale refurbishments of all of its premises and embarking on a digital transformation of its operations as well as continuing to seek more strategic acquisition opportunities.
