CUMBRIA, UNITED KINGDOM - Cumbria-based Burlington - producers of natural stone products - has announced two new senior management appointments. It is a move that has been orchestrated to further elevate Burlington’s presence in the markets it serves both in the U.K. and overseas, and forms part of the company’s exciting and ambitious corporate development strategy, reports Burlington.

Responsible for the day-to-day operation, while overseeing the strategic direction of Burlington’s business interests, is former production director, Rob Irwin, who now assumes the position of managing director. Reporting to Irwin is newly appointed sales and marketing director, Nick Williams. It is Williams who will help deliver Burlington’s vision for the future.

Commenting on the strategic importance of the new appointments, Duncan Peake, Burlington’s chief executive and board member of parent company, the Holker Estates Group, said, “We are extremely excited about the new appointments, as we have every confidence that both Rob and Nick will be instrumental in leading Burlington into a new and increasingly dynamic era. They have the knowledge, ability, experience and passion that are required to elevate Burlington’s business onto a new level, driving it out of the recession and into a bright and successful future.”

Having joined Burlington in 2001 as production manager, Irwin was quickly promoted to production director in 2003, when he assumed overall responsibility for Burlington’s production department. In a career spanning some 33 years, Irwin is not only well versed with all aspects of production planning, management and training, he is highly-experienced within the field of quality control, having both developed and implemented a number of effective and efficient quality systems. He is a member of the Chartered Quality Institute.

With 25 years of sales and marketing experience within the building and construction sector, Williams is well placed to help position Burlington as a unique proposition within the natural stone products arena by highlighting a number of factors that differentiate the company within the marketplace.
