BRACKNELL Roofing has promoted Paul Northrop to the role of Branch Manager for its South Coast branch in Southampton.
The former roof tiler – who was formerly Senior Contracts Manager at the Ocean Way branch – brings 25 years’ experience to position.
He already has his sights set on growth for 2019 and will work with the branch’s Contracts team with the aim of securing more projects.
“I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to step into the role of Branch Manager, and I have a very clear vision for growth, particularly in the short and medium term,” said Paul.
“I’ve already got strong relationships with a number of QSs in the region, and I’ll be looking to develop these further to ensure that Bracknell Roofing is in pole position to secure more contracts.
“The South Coast branch has a great team and can demonstrate a good mix of experience on projects. New-build housing estates are what we’re well known for but we do get involved in a wide variety of other projects, such as a recent one where we reroofed nearly 300 houses for a local authority – which had specific issues around the conservation of protected animals.
“I really enjoying working for a large national company, and it spurs me on to make sure that the South Coast is the star performing branch in the company.”
Paul recently completed a Level 3 Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) qualification, a Level 6 in Construction Management and the health, safety and environmental practice and management accreditation NEBOSH.
“Paul is very ambitious and has a clear plan for growth, and we’re looking to support him and the team on the South Coast,” said Bracknell Roofing’s Divisional Director, Simon Smith.
