Timbmet has announced the appointment of Mike Tattam as sales director, effective 1 March, 2016. In this new position, he will lead the company’s sales teams across the UK.

Mr Tattam, who has over 15 years’ experience at board level, has previously held senior sales positions with such organisations as NMBS, H+H and Jablite. He is also a Freeman of the City of London and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Builders’ Merchants.

Prior to joining Timbmet’s senior team, Mr Tattam held the position of sales director at Russell Timber Technology, where he was responsible for securing major projects with national housebuilders and developing strategies to grow turnover and profitability.

Timbmet is committed to cultural change - growing and building the business for the future - and in his position as sales director, Mr Tattam will play a major role in this strategic approach going forward.
