Burdens has appointed four new national account managers - Richard Mountford, Paul Leversuch, David Stolton and Greg Dunlop – to its team.

Bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to Burdens, the new national account managers will report directly to Burdens' national sales director, Ian Griggs.

Mr Mountford, who has more than 24 years' experience in account management, has previously worked for several large organisations including Shell, BT and Cable and Wireless. He is particularly skilled in contact strategy and stakeholder engagement, and will be working in tandem with the regions to develop strong and productive customer relationships.

Mr Leversuch has been in construction all his working life, covering contracting, house building, merchanting and manufacturing. He has a particular interest in supply chain management and comes from Derbyshire, although like all of the newly appointed managers, his role is field-based.

Kent-based Mr Stolton is a CIM chartered marketer and has 13 years' experience in construction, primarily drainage, supply systems and HVAC. He is looking forward to partnering with key national contractors, and to the challenge of supplying innovative solutions and cost saving opportunities.

Mr Dunlop has been in construction for seven years, most recently with British Gypsum where he worked closely with the UK's leading merchants. He will continue to build solid working relationships for Burdens, with a view to increasing the company's share of the market.

Keith Dorling, managing director at Burdens, said: “We are delighted to announce this expansion to our established team, building on our aim to have the most knowledgeable staff in the sector. We act as an added value partner to our customers and ensuring we have the best talent in the industry allows us to provide the optimum customer experience and service. This investment will also enable us to continue expansion into new and existing markets and I welcome them on board.”
