Andy Reid, formerly ARDEX Business Development Director, takes on the recently formed role of UK Business Development Director overseeing major project specification, selling across the UK for both ARDEX and BAL.  Both will repoprt, also reporting into David Hackett, General Manager – Building Adhesives Ltd.   Peter Bell remains the Managing Director of both businesses, and member of the ARDEX Group Global Management Committee.

As part of his pre-retirement plan until July 2021, Lee Kidd – ARDEX Sales & Marketing Director will provide support to the newly restructured UK Commercial Team and support the business transformation with his vast experience of the respective markets.
