Nick Jarvis has joined Expamet Building Products as commercial development manager.
Mr Jarvis has more than 20 years of experience of management having overseen a number of merchant, specialist and retail accounts alongside commercial, technical and customer service teams.
He said his challenge will be to take a fresh look at a number of market sectors where Expamet can develop sales in specialist distribution.
He said: "We are looking at a host of new avenues and opportunities whilst upholding the robust reputation that Expamet has in the market place."
Mr Jarvis has previously worked with Expamet chairman John Cowley and md Nigel Dickinson following their acquisition of Marley Waterproofing in 2001.
