Wilson Brook expands

The Wilson Brook consultancy which specialises in executive search within the hire and building materials markets has been doing some recruitment of its own, having appointed Andy Chambers as Business Development Director.

Founded by MD Neil Holloway in 2018, Wilson Brook has grown successfully to now have a team of 10. Joining Neil and his team of Senior Consultants Matt Lambert, Imogen Pearson and Jonny Pegler, Andy brings recruitment knowledge from over 20 years industry experience, having worked for merchants such as Jewson and EH Smith, and the manufacturer Wienerberger.

“This is a fantastic appointment and will help me and the existing team both deliver for existing clients and provide a springboard for further growth as we look to bring our highly regarded head-hunting services to more clients within the sector,” said Neil, who is pictured (left) with Andy Chambers. 

“We’ve developed a fantastic reputation over the last four years, placing an interesting variety of senior appointments ranging from managing directors (the new MDs for Mainline and Mr Plant Hire for instance), commercial directors, sales directors, marketing directors, operations directors and many others. 

“Andy’s unique combination of recruitment and industry experience will be a real asset.  More importantly, his values fit perfectly with the business – we deeply appreciate the responsibility of helping people on their career journey along with ensuring that companies can recruit the absolute best people.”

Andy commented: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Wilson Brook and the already excellent team that is in place. Focusing on board, director and senior management appointments in our specialist sectors of hire and building products and several others closely related, combined with probably the most thorough and relevant proactive recruitment process within the industry, I feel the team at Wilson Brook is very well placed to continue their success to date.”
