Bracknell Roofing has appointed Danny Thorne to develop a specialist flat roofing division of the business in the Midlands.
The company is best known for its expertise in pitched roofing projects, particularly in the domestic market for new-build houses and renovations – but Danny will work solely on raising awareness of its flat roofing capabilities on new build and refurbishment projects, in both the commercial and private housing sectors.
In one of his previous roles, he started from scratch by building up a flat roofing division of a company, which won £1.5m worth of new contracts within the first 12 months – and he feels that he can surpass that with his move to Bracknell Roofing because of the professional infrastructure and the support and resources available to him.
“The management team at Bracknell Roofing have very ambitious plans moving forward, which makes it a very exciting time to join the company,” said Danny. “I’m looking forward to showing the flat roofing expertise that Bracknell Roofing has and surprising a few people who think we’re just specialists in pitched roofing. With more than 15 years of experience, I truly believe that Bracknell Roofing has the foundations to build a very successful and industry-leading flat roofing division.”
“Our offices in the south and north of England have made great headway in winning flat roofing projects, but in the Midlands there is still lots of work to do – but there are lots of opportunities out there for schools, hospitals and retail premises; I’m extremely confident that we can secure contracts very quickly.”
Bracknell Roofing’s Managing Director Simon Smith feels that Danny’s appointment is another feather in the cap for the company, which recently announced a move to new premises in Leeds and made another high-profile appointment with Howard York as branch manager.
“Danny is a very ambitious young man with a proven track record of building up new or existing divisions of businesses, and we are very excited about what he can bring to Bracknell Roofing,” said Simon.
“The appointments of Danny and Howard in such a short space of time are strengthening our business in key areas as we take very proactive measures to increase our market share in areas where we can demonstrate the skills and expertise of our company, which has more than 40 years of experience.”
