Burdens Appoints New National Account Managers

Burdens, leading provider of civils and utilities solutions, has announced the appointment of four new National Account Managers.

The appointments demonstrate the company’s commitment to providing dedicated support for customers across all sectors of the business, as well as streamlining the quoting process and enhancing customer service. This investment follows significant growth in sectors including airports, communications, health, education, highways, industrial, commercial and retail. Burdens also manage logistics and store contracts for several major utilities providers.

The four new National Account Managers are Richard Mountford, Paul Leversuch, David Stolton and Greg Dunlop, and they bring a wealth of experience and expertise to Burdens. Each will report directly to Burdens' National Sales Director, Ian Griggs.

Richard Mountford, who has more than 24 years' experience in account management, has previously worked for several large organisations including Shell, BT and Cable and Wireless. He is particularly skilled in contact strategy and stakeholder engagement, and will be working in tandem with the regions to develop strong and productive customer relationships.

Paul Leversuch has been in construction all his working life, covering contracting, house building, merchanting and manufacturing. He has a particular interest in supply chain management and comes from Derbyshire, although like all of the newly appointed managers, his role is field-based.

Kent-based David Stolton is a CIM chartered marketer and has 13 years' experience in construction, primarily drainage, supply systems and HVAC. He is looking forward to partnering with key national contractors, and to the challenge of supplying innovative solutions and cost saving opportunities.

Greg Dunlop has been in construction for seven years, most recently with British Gypsum where he worked closely with the UK's leading merchants. He will continue to build solid working relationships for Burdens, with a view to increasing the company's share of the market.

Now part of Wolseley UK, Burdens was founded in 1929. With skilled staff, comprehensive stock, a fleet of more than 100 vehicles and over 36 branches, Burdens is well placed to provide customers with exactly what they need, when they need it. The appointment of four new National Account Mangers is a welcome step towards providing that expertise and excellent service on an even greater scale.

Keith Dorling, Managing Director at Burdens, said: “We are delighted to announce this expansion to our established team, building on our aim to have the most knowledgeable staff in the sector. We act as an added value partner to our customers and ensuring we have the best talent in the industry allows us to provide the optimum customer experience and service. This investment will also enable us to continue expansion into new and existing markets and I welcome them on board.”
