Landstruction, arguably one of the North's fastest growing full-service landscaping businesses, has further strengthened its senior management team with two board level appointments this year already.

Joining the Chester based team is experienced Regional Director Alan Wilkins. In the newly created role, Alan will be responsible for Landstruction's continued growth focussing specifically on the company's dedicated maintenance and land management departments. Alan brings a wealth of relevant industry experience including Operations Director roles at nationally recognised companies Glendale Services and Ground Control Limited.

Alan is very excited about the future: "I am delighted to become part of this young and ambitious team. This fast-growing business is full of fresh ideas and I am very much looking forward to playing an integral role shaping its future development and success."

Alan has over 10 years' experience in similar Director level positions and was geographically responsible for all contracts in the North of England, North Wales and Scotland totalling over £13m in his previous role. He will also be responsible for the creation of the company's first ever Arboriculture strategy as well as implementation of the supporting infrastructure required to deliver a world class service for both new and existing clients.

His appointment follows hot on the heels of the recent appointment of Non-Executive Director Carl Allen. Carl will work alongside the existing members of the senior management team to help shape the strategic vision for Landstruction and support the growth of the complementary Big Hedge Co. business.

David Binks, Managing Director at Landstruction said: "I am delighted by the appointment of both Alan and Carl who will be key to the company's continued growth over the coming years. It is a real coup for the business and testament to our ambitious plans that we have been able to attract two such experienced experts in their respective fields".

David is equally excited about increasing the company's specialist expertise within Arboriculture and added: "Alan will provide a unique addition to our current client offering. The business is now ideally positioned to provide a fully integrated, bespoke service for both commercial and residential projects across the North. It continues to be an exciting time to join the Landstruction team."
