East Anglian independent builders merchant Collier & Catchpole has recruited Michael Andrews as the newest member of the Colchester yard sales team.
Andrews, who first worked for another independent builders merchant straight from leaving Colchester Sixth Form, gained detailed knowledge of bricks having worked for two years in sales with brick specialists Brickability, which earned him the name “Mick the Brick”.
Commenting on his decision to join Collier & Catchpole, the 25-year-old said: “I was keen to return to the merchants’ side of the business. Although I very much enjoyed the responsibility of looking after a wide geographic region (Essex and East London), I believe that I can now put this experience and product knowledge to good effect in advising Collier & Catchpole customers, regular or otherwise, as part of the sales team in Colchester.”
Managing director Tim Rowbottom said he was delighted to welcome Andrews to Collier & Catchpole.
“We continue to recruit with an eye to the future and believe that Michael, with his specialist knowledge of bricks and his wide general knowledge of the building sector, will prove to be a very valuable member of the Colchester yard sales team,” said Rowbottom.
