Simpson Strong-Tie has appointed Jon Head to the newly created role of sales director, in the connectors UK division of the business.
Prior to his most recent internal appointment, Head spent a number of years as a regional manager for Simpson Strong-Tie, helping Builders merchants in the South West of England grow sales of building connectors.
More recently, as head of the engineered products division, he oversaw the development innovations for the new homes sector as well as enhanced the service levels to distributors and manufacturers involved in new home construction.
His new role as sales director – connectors, allows him to bring all of his experience to bear on the new build as well as the renovation, maintenance and improvement (RMI) sectors.
Head said: “The service requirements and product ranges applicable to the engineered product and RMI sectors are quite distinct, however I am looking forward to the taking the best practices from each and seeing how they can be applied.”
