In a strategic decision to bring the Concrete Products division to the company’s Executive Committee, Aggregate Industries, a leading player in the construction industry, has appointed Simon Marriott as Managing Director of Concrete Products.
Boasting a wealth of experience in the construction materials industry, Simon started his journey as a plant manager, covering this position for seven years. He then moved to Bardon Aggregates in 1996, shortly before its merger with Camas, when the new entity became known as Aggregate Industries. Within Aggregate Industries, Simon has progressed through the ranks of the Express Asphalt division to become General Manager, before going on to be Director of the mainstream asphalt division’s Southern region.
Following a return to Express Asphalt, Simon went on to run Bardon Concrete and Aggregate Industries’ cement importing function, before becoming Director of Concrete Products in late 2015.
In his current role as Managing Director of Concrete Products, Simon will be responsible for all hard landscaping aspects of the business including Charcon, Bradstone, Masterblock, Charcon Construction Solutions and Simply Paving. He will also head up the Marketing Communications function.
Commenting on his appointment, Simon Marriot said: “Having been a part of Aggregate Industries for the best part of 25 years, I’m delighted to join the Executive Committee. This change is the result of my team’s tremendous efforts to demonstrate the value added that we bring to the business and I am extremely proud of them. I’m more committed than ever to further growing our Concrete Products business, and I’m looking forward to what the future brings for Aggregate Industries.”
Guy Edwards, Chief Executive Officer at Aggregate Industries said: “In a market more challenging and dynamic than ever we need to remain agile and adjust our offering to customers’ needs, making it easier for them to bring to life even the most creative projects. Simon’s extensive, varied experience within the company and the wider industry makes him a great addition to the Executive Committee. The knowledge he has developed over the years at every level gives him a great ability to improve our customer centric approach and the quality of our offering and services for the customer.”
