Harrison & Clough makes new appointment 28 May 2024

Harrison & Clough has appointed Malcolm Becker as national development manager, bringing with him over 30 years of experience to strengthen customer relationships and build product ranges to be supplied across the UK.  

Beginning his career with Harrison & Clough as a warehouse operative 28 years ago, Malcolm quickly progressed through the business into a sales position as a product demonstrator and then up to head of product management. Malcolm has gained considerable experience across a variety of roles that involve having hands-on logistic, supply chain and key product expertise. After a brief stint away from Harrison & Clough, Malcolm seized the opportunity to return to his new role. 

He now plans to apply his holistic knowledge of the fastener market, work closely with business development teams, expand product lines, and enhance merchant knowledge of its products with a particular focus on Metalmate®.  

“By leveraging my three decades of experience within the fastener and fixing industry, I plan to pass on my product expertise to our merchants, better familiarise them with the specifics of our products and help them to boost customer satisfaction and ultimately drive sales. Whilst I plan on strengthening relationships with existing accounts and expanding on those opportunities, I will also jump on new market research to identify the most efficient routes to market,” says Malcolm. 

Malcolm strives to solidify new and expanding ranges of fasteners and fixings by applying his product expertise to best match items to suit client needs. Mark Dorrington, business development director at Harrison & Clough, adds: “Malcolm’s long-term understanding of Harrison & Clough sets him to be a sales driving force. I am excited about the growth of our sales team and the wealth of expertise Malcolm will contribute to our collective knowledge.”
