Business Development Manager, Gary Fish, joins the firm with the aim of further expanding the company’s presence in the North East, following successful beginnings in the region. This included securing business with some of the biggest manufacturers in the area and its expansion into larger premises at the Wilton Centre at the end of last year.

With 20 years’ experience in the engineering and manufacturing sector, Gary will specifically focus on growing the north east business, developing existing client relationships and new business opportunities, as well as marketing and event planning and management. He will work alongside Haden Freeman’s recently appointed Sales and Marketing Director, Duncan Cammack.

Capitalising on the booming process industries in the region, Gary will look to mirror the company’s success in the north east to date, including the design and build of a new state-of-the-art effluent treatment plant for Teesside-based biopharmaceutical firm, Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies in 2015.

Newly appointed Gary said: “What excites me most about my new role is the opportunity to work with a truly innovative multi-disciplinary engineering company, but also, that I am able to do so in my home region of which I am passionate about. After all, Teesside and the North East as a whole has an excellent engineering heritage which reaches out all around the globe.”

We employ some of the best people in the industry here at Haden Freeman and Gary certain fits the bill. He brings a wealth of experience to the role which I’m certain will be absolutely invaluable to us and our vision for the region.”
