Builders’ merchant Cromar Building Products has appointed a new Head of Marketing.

Helen Kirby will be taking on the role at the Yorkshire-based company. Her previous job was at manufacturer Sika Everbuild and she has 12 years’ experience in the building and construction industry.

Kirby said: "I am very excited to have started the next step in my career with Cromar. They are not just a growing company, they are an independent family run business and it very much has that feel to it – I’m sure this is not just noticed by the staff but by customers as well.

“Since starting I have hit the ground running and am loving every minute of it.”
