Brett Landscaping & Building Products has made two additions to the merchant’s team, one appointment to the Brett Approved Installer team serving the south east, and two appointments to the Commercial Sales team serving London and the south west.

The investment in the positions is part of Brett Landscaping’s drive to improve its geographical reach and response time to customers at a time when success is increasingly being driven by quick and efficient delivery of products and service among merchants and contractors. Brett Landscaping & Building Products is the manufacturer of high quality, ethically sourced paving slabs, block paving, kerb systems and decorative gravels.

James Bridge has been appointed as the National Sales Manager (Merchants) and will have the responsibility of leading and managing the team of Area Sales Managers focused on products for the domestic market. James Burgess will join the Merchant Sales team as Area Sales Manager covering the south and south west regions of England.

Both bring extensive experience of the landscaping industry to Brett Landscaping, having held key roles at businesses including Bradstone, Day Aggregates and Aggregate Industries.

Rachel Deal joins as Brett Approved Installer Development Manager for the south east, arriving from Marshalls, where she was Business Development Manager. Deal also has an established career in branch management and sales with previous roles at Keyline, Burdens and Jewson’s. 

Jo Wallace-Blaker will join the Commercial Sales team as Civils Sales Manager covering the south west, and will be focussed on continuing the development of commercial sales working with housebuilders across the region on a range of schemes. She joins Brett Landscaping with extensive experience from roles held at Keyline, Marshalls CPM and Burdens.

Finally, Sam Sherwood is the new Specification Sales Manager for London and south region. Sam’s industry and product expertise will place him as an integral part of the Technical & Specification Sales team.

Danielle Thorpe, Head of Marketing & BAI Scheme Manager at Brett Landscaping, said: “Brett is built on relationships, and we have invested in great people who are already well established in the industry that can bring their expertise and experience to our existing customer relationships, as much as with new prospects.

“Each appointment has become a valuable addition to our team and are a key part of our drive to improve our geographical reach as well as ability to respond quickly and effectively to customer requirements. We anticipate that these appointments position us well for the years ahead, where we expect the hard landscaping products market for homeowners and at the wider commercial level to evolve quickly.”
