Graham Barr, managing director of retail-national at Heath Lambert said: “Having opened a new office in the heart of Birmingham, we are actively looking to build on the strength of our existing team, and Mark represents the first step in this plan.

"Mark is well respected among both the Birmingham and wider Midlands business communities and adds a strong mix of enthusiasm, experience and capability to our business. His strong sales background will undoubtedly build our presence in the region over the forthcoming years.”

Williams is on gardening leave until he officially joins the company on 15 June 2009.
