Fasteners and fixings specialist Harrison & Clough has appointed Malcolm Becker to the role of National Development Manager.

Becker brings over 30 years of experience as he sets out to strengthen customer relationships and build product ranges supplied across the UK.  

Beginning his career with Harrison & Clough as a warehouse operative 28 years ago, Becker quickly progressed through the business into a sales position as a Product Demonstrator, and then up to Head of Product Management.

Becker has gained considerable experience across a variety of roles with hands-on logistic, supply chain and key product expertise. After a brief stint away from Harrison & Clough, Malcolm seized the opportunity to return to his new role. 

Commenting on his appointment, Becker said: “By leveraging my three decades of experience within the fastener and fixing industry, I plan to pass on my product expertise to our merchants, better familiarise them with the specifics of our products and help them to boost customer satisfaction and ultimately drive sales.

“While I plan on strengthening relationships with existing accounts and expanding on those opportunities, I will also jump on new market research to identify the most efficient routes to market.” 

Reflecting on his career, he added: “Building my long-term career at Harrison & Clough has been a rewarding journey. The business has not only supported my personal growth but has also given me opportunities to upskill my expertise across different departments. I am excited to continue my professional development here.”  

Mark Dorrington, Harrison & Clough’s Business Development Director, said: “Malcolm’s long-term understanding of Harrison & Clough sets him to be a sales driving force. I am excited about the growth of our sales team and the wealth of expertise Malcolm will contribute to our collective knowledge.”
