Bracknell Roofing has promoted Paul Northrop to the role of Branch Manager for our South Coast branch in Southampton.
The former roof tiler – who was formerly Senior Contracts Manager at our Ocean Way branch – brings nearly 25 years’ experience to position, as well as a lots of qualifications and accreditations.
Paul said: “I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to step into the role of Branch Manager, and I have a very clear vision for growth, particularly in the short and medium term.
“I’ve already got strong relationships with a number of QSs in the region, and I’ll be looking to develop these further to ensure that Bracknell Roofing is in pole position to secure more contracts.
“The South Coast branch has a great team and can demonstrate a good mix of experience on projects. New-build housing estates are what we’re well known for but we do get involved in a wide variety of other projects, such as a recent one where we reroofed nearly 300 houses for a local authority – which had specific issues around the conservation of protected animals.
“I really enjoying working for a large national company, and it spurs me on to make sure that the South Coast is the star performing branch in the company.”
Paul recently completed a Level 3 Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) qualification, a Level 6 in Construction Management and the health, safety and environmental practice and management accreditation NEBOSH.
His promotion is another example of the company’s philosophy of recognising, investing in and promoting talented people, according to Divisional Director, Simon Smith.
“Bracknell Roofing is in the very fortunate position of having a wealth of highly experienced and committed people in all parts of the business, so when opportunities arise, they are able to take the next step in their career progression with us,” said Simon.
“Paul is very ambitious and has a clear plan for growth, and we’re looking to support him and the team on the South Coast.”
