Kent Blaxill continues to expand in 2018 with the appointment of a Sales Di-rector, Mark Robinson.

Managing Director, Simon Blaxill said: “Our heritage is in Colchester, but Kent Blaxill has over 240 staff employed at 15 branches with a further 3 new sites planned in 2018. One of the newest branches is in Market Harborough in the East Midlands and the time is right to form an operational manage-ment board to drive the continued expansion beyond East Anglia.”

Simon said: “Mark’s joins us in a newly-formed role of Sales Director to work with other more established senior team members including James Park, Commercial Director, Nick Scully, Operations Director, Kevin Pryke, Fi-nance Director and myself. The final member of the operational manage-ment board is Allanna Docherty, HR Director. The Board decided in 2017 to invest heavily in staff development and Allanna has begun a wide-ranging programme to reinforce core values and develop a talented and motivated team.”

Managing Director, Simon Blaxill said: “As a company, we have been evolv-ing in the building materials supply industry for 180 years. We remain a fami-ly-owned business with the same core values of quality and service. It is very exciting for me to have a young and energetic team start 2018 with many new ideas for the next stage of Kent Blaxill’s growth. Long may it con-tinue.”
