Norbord has appointed Jenny Stainton as the new business development manager (BDM) for the East Midlands.

Ms Stainton will be providing support for, and maximising the sales of, Norbord products in a number of builders’ merchants in the East Midlands area including Travis Perkins and Jewson.

Having previously worked for BuildBase as timber sales manager, Ms Stainton is an ideal fit for Norbord.

Commenting on her new role, Ms Stainton, said: “My previous roles have centred around forestry, timber and contracting, so I bring with me a considerable amount of experience. I am looking forward to the challenge, and it will be great working with builders’ merchants again, but this time round on the opposite side of the counter.”
