The home improvement and garden wholesaler has taken on Martin Sutcliffe as manager for Decco Leeds, following Andrew Ballantine’s promotion to chief operating officer.  The appointment was effective from August 1.

Mr Sutcliffe joins Decco from sister company Edmundson Electrical, where he began his career in 2011 as a graduate trainee. Since then he has managed three different branches; the most recent being Edmundson Electrical Grimsby.
