Andrew Simpson adds packed products operational responsibility commercial remit
Hanson have appointed Andrew Simpson as their packed products director, adding operational responsibility to his existing commercial remit.
Mr Simpson, who is responsible for sales of all of Hanson packed products, including cement, ready-to-use concrete and aggregates, will now also look after manufacturing at the company’s ‘ready-to-use’ production site in Nuneaton as well as its construction aggregates packing plants across the country.
He started his career with Hanson in 1997 when he was appointed area sales manager for Castle Cement, part of the HeidelbergCement Group, which bought Hanson in 2007.
Since then he has held a number of different sales roles and attained a first-class degree in Business Studies from De Montfort University in Leicester.
In 2017 Mr Simpson was honoured with the freedom of the City of London and installed as a Liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Builders’ Merchants in recognition of his work within the builders’ merchants’ industry.
‘This is a really exciting opportunity for me to broaden my experience and continue to raise the bar so that we deliver service excellence,’ he said.
‘I will also focus on our commitment to health and safety and offering high-quality innovative products, while still being closely involved with our merchant customers.’
