Aggregate Industries has bolstered its asphalt and ready-mixed concrete division with the high-profile appointment of new Head of Business Development, Joanne Wilkins.
A rising star in the construction industry, Joanne possesses an extraordinary track record of successfully delivering product development and growth strategies, having spent more than 11 years with construction giant Carillion, most recently as Product Development Director.
Already active in her new role at Aggregate, Joanne’s remit is seeing her drive sales and develop the firm’s market leading asphalt and concrete performance products, whilst spearheading the growth of value added services.
With Aggregate Industries recently named as ‘Endorsed Employer of Women’ by WORK180, a pioneering jobs platform that pre-screens employers to ensure they support women’s careers, Joanne is passionate about aiding the company’s ambitious plans to create a more inclusive and diverse workforce.
Talking about her appointment, Joanne commented: “I am delighted to join the Aggregate Industries team and look forward to further developing the strong, customer focused culture that the asphalt and ready-mix concrete business is already renowned for.
“My focus will be on collaborative planning, bringing both teams closer together and using our in-depth market and product knowledge to drive sustainable growth opportunities.
“The infrastructure sector will continue to be a key area of growth for Aggregate Industries over the coming years.
“As such, by providing real innovation through a truly diverse workforce, pioneering products and value added services, we hope to build on our position as the supply partner of choice on some of the country’s most ambitious projects.”
