Mr Head has spent several years as a regional manager for Simpson Strong-Tie, helping builders merchants in the south-west of England grow sales of building connectors. More recently, as head of the Engineered Products Division, he oversaw the development of innovations for the new homes sector and enhanced service to distributors and manufacturers involved in newbuild.

His new role covers the newbuild and RMI sectors.

“The service requirements and product ranges applicable to the engineered product and RMI sectors are quite distinct,” said Mr Head, “however, I am looking forward to taking the best practices from each and seeing how they can be applied.”
