Lafarge Tarmac has appointed a new managing director to run its Building Products business.
Mark Joel will oversee the Building Products’ 46 operational sites and 800 employees.
He was previously group director of strategy and business performance at Lafarge Tarmac.
The firm acquired Tarmac Building Products in April this year.
Mr Joel has previously held senior roles at Tarmac, including heading up its UK aggregate’s asphalt and readymix concrete businesses.
He said: “It’s an exciting and dynamic time for Lafarge Tarmac.
“The acquisition of Tarmac Building Products expands our offer and opens up new opportunities for us, particularly in the housebuilding sector.”
