Lagan Products has appointed James FitzGerald as area sales manager for the North West and West Yorkshire regions.

Mr FitzGerald joins a team of five other area sales managers across the UK and has almost 15 years’ merchant experience working for manufacturers, distributors and more recently IBC Buying Group.

Commenting on his new role, Mr FitzGerald said: “Joining the team at Lagan is an exciting challenge for me. I have a wide range of sales experience and a key focus of my role within Lagan will be to develop and promote the fantastic new range of clay bricks from our Kingscourt Plant.”

Mark Morris, commercial director at Lagan Products in the UK, added: “James will have a sole focus on developing the clay brick side of our business. Key to this will be to introduce merchants and house builders to our range and demonstrate how we can help make a difference to their projects.”
