Taylor's Timber Centre appoints key players

Former regional sales manager for Encon Insulation in Wetherby, Billy Wright, has been appointed as the new depot manager and 34-year-old Chris Moralee is now sales executive for the timber merchant.

Wright has spent 30 years in the regional timber trade, holding a number of branch manager positions with various firms. He also ran his own company, Building Solutions, in Batley, for six years.

Moralee started his career at the old CR Taylors in Denholme, spending five years in the timber yard, before radically switching careers to work for the NHS in mental health, helping patients with behavioural problems.

As well as securing new accounts for the firm, he is also focusing on using text messages and social media to alert customers to special offers.

Managing director Charles Taylor said: “Billy and Chris are valuable additions to the team and they’re already making a marked difference. Our conversion rate on quotes has soared, sales enquiries are rolling in, our customer service has improved dramatically and we are seeing many old and familiar faces returning to do business with us.”
