Donaldson Timber Engineering (DTE) has appointed Sean Annells as general manager of its branch in Andover, Hampshire.
Annells, who joined the leading truss manufacturer in 2015 as a design technician and has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, said: “This is a great opportunity and I’m really looking forward to leading the team at Andover.
“Over the least two decades, I feel like I’ve picked up many of the best practices for customer service and operational management and I can’t wait to make a start at building on the already terrific work we do at Andover, and across all of DTE’s branches.”
He started his career at Gang-Nail Systems in 1996 as a trainee design engineer and worked his way up through the design team before becoming a technical support representative. Following 16 years with Gang-Nail, Annells took positions at Consultec Timber Frame and Scandia Hus.
Jonathan Fellingham, managing director of DTE, said: “With hands–on experience of product design, combined with roles involving client support, Sean has a proven ability to understand the needs of our customers and ensure that we provide solutions to support their projects efficiently and cost effectively.”
