Former owner leaves M&M Timber

Forest Garden Group chief executive Guy Grainger has paid tribute to former owner of M&M Timber Nigel Poyner, who has left the business.

M&M Timber has announced a series of senior board appointments as part of major operational changes.

Since the company’s acquisition by the Forest Garden Group two years ago, sales in both agricultural and landscaping timber channels have seen "considerable growth" under the direction of business development manager, Fraser Hall, who now joins the board as sales director.

Grainger said: "Following the sale of M&M Timber’s assets to the Forest Group, Nigel has worked tirelessly as Managing Director to help integrate the business into the Group. Having done this it is now time for an executive team to take the Division on to the next stage in its development. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nigel for his considerable support, hard work and commitment that he has given to both the Group and the M&M integration project over the last two years." 

Continuing in his current role of Group Engineering and Projects Director, Mark Dayson is to extend his focus on improving M&M’s productivity and processes as well as taking responsibility for Divisional operational structure. 


Richard Sadler remains as Group Business Development Director, but will take on the added responsibility for internal sales and marketing at M&M. 


Grainger added "The new executive team will support the smooth transition of M&M Timber to the next stage in its development and demonstrate the Groups ongoing support and commitment to the Division, which this year will receive a further £1 million of capital investment."
