Bond It has appointed a new sales and marketing director to the company’s senior management team.

Paul Walters joins the manufacturer of sealants, adhesives, tiling products and other building chemicals, tasked with contributing to Bond It's expansion through the development of the company's sales and marketing functions.

He will also be instrumental in further building the Bond It brand and in growing the business’ customer base.

Paul brings with him a wealth of experience gained in multi-million organisations serving many of the same sectors as Bond It, his new employer says.

Prior to joining Bond It, Paul spent 21 years with the Calder Group, Europe’s largest producer of lead sheet and lead-based technical products.

During that time he is said to have enjoyed continued progression - initially joining its sales office purchasing before being promoted through various roles to the position of commercial director.

In this latter post, he was responsible for Calder’s building products division, which supplies builder’s merchants and the wider construction industry with products ranging from lead sheet and fabricated lead solutions, to lead tools, fixings and specialist underlays.

David Moore, managing director at Bond It, said: “Paul’s appointment represents a significant and strategically important hire for Bond It. It also reflects our continuing success and expansion as well as our ambitious plans for the future. We are delighted to welcome him to the team.

“Joining Bond It was a natural decision because it was a case of the right opportunity at the right time.

“The business is undergoing a particularly exciting period in its evolution with recent developments including major investments into new production infrastructure and the creation of a joint venture agreement with Astral Poly Technik.

“I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s future success.”
