Senior appointment at Breedon Aggregates
BREEDON Aggregates have announced that Tim Hall is to be appointed chief executive of the company’s English operations – the former Ennstone Johnston business now renamed Breedon Aggregates England – with effect from 1 October 2010.
Previously managing director of Tarmac Western, and prior to that managing director of Nash Rocks, Mr Hall will be based at Breedon on the Hill and will report directly to Breedon Aggregates group chief executive Simon Vivian.
The company’s Scottish operations, Breedon Aggregates Scotland (formerly Ennstone Thistle), will continue to be run by chief executive Alan Mackenzie, who also reports directly to Mr Vivian.
Last month Marwyn Materials Ltd, an AIM-listed acquisitions company led by Peter Tom and Simon Vivian, acquired Breedon Holdings Ltd – Britain’ largest independent aggregates business – in a reverse takeover.
Speaking at the time, Mr Tom described the deal as a unique opportunity to acquire a profitable and well-invested building materials company at or near the bottom of the economic cycle, and said he was confident that the financial and operational performance of the business could be appreciably improved over the next few years.
