CHELTENHAM: Builders' Merchant George Bence & Sons has announced that Paul Bence is stepping into the role of managing director.
Mr Bence, who has worked for the family-owned company for eight years said: "Ian Crowe has done a tremendous job in broadening the business base of the company over the past four years and I intend to continue his excellent work, by adding value to the company.
'After 156 years of family ownership I am committed to the family values that are fundamental to a business model which succeeds, thanks to the energy, commitment and professionalism of our loyal and experienced staff.
