We are pleased to announce that we have recruited a new Commercial Director with wide-ranging knowledge of the construction industry, to help deliver our growth ambition.
Adam Smith, formerly National Sales Director at Jewson, will lead Forterra’s nationwide team of sales managers.
Adam brings with him almost three decades’ of experience in the construction sector, as well as an M.B.A. from Warwick Business School and a B.Sc. Hons. degree in Physics from Manchester University.
He has been tasked with improving our overall revenues, as the UK building products industry is expected to grow through an increase in housebuilding and recovering activity in the contracting sector.
Adam said; “Forterra is a well-established and hugely successful company with an enviable heritage in the UK building products market. Through my experience I believe I can bring value to Forterra through this role and build on its success.”
Before working for Jewson, Adam was Sales and Marketing Director at Tata Steel and held the role of Managing Director at Corus Colorsteels, as well as various other senior management positions across Corus.
Stephen Harrison, UK Managing Director of Forterra, said; “Adam’s wealth of experience in the industry makes him the perfect choice for the role of our Commercial Director. With the country’s homebuilding sector gathering pace, this is an exciting time for the company, and we wish Adam well.”
