Marshalls Names Dean New General Manager – Builders Merchants Journal

Ian Dean has become Managing Director of Landscape and Building Products at Marshalls, having worked for the company since August 2020 when he joined to manage several specific business divisions. His leadership of the Civil and Drainage, Bricks and Masonry, Mortars and Toppings, Aggregates and Landscape Protection divisions will be extended to include the core business of Marshalls Landscape.

Dean takes over the reins of the landscaping business from former Group Commercial Director Pete Hallitt, who will retire at the end of 2022. Hallitt has been with Marshalls for over 17 years; he will manage several strategic projects until his retirement.

Martyn Coffey, CEO of Marshalls, said: “Ian has become a great asset to Marshalls since joining us just under two years ago, and I am delighted to see him take on this role. We invest in our growth, innovation and customer experience, and Ian is an integral part of that.

“Pete has been a very important part of my management team and a crucial part of the Marshalls for a very long time; while he is still with us until the end of the year, i would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his commitment and hard work over the years.

Prior to joining Marshalls, Dean was Managing Director of Knauf, where he worked for 19 years and evolved from roles in sales and marketing. He said, “I’m thrilled to be in this role at a company that has such a strong brand and, most importantly, such great people. It’s an exciting time for Marshalls with the launch of our customer-focused Shine program and the opening of our innovative two-block factory later this year which will produce new landscaping product lines.
