“Recruiting a highly experienced team to support us at this pivotal time will help give us the structure and resource to progress our ambitious pipeline creating significant new jobs, homes and investment in the Northern Powerhouse.”
The new offices are based in Ashley village between Knutsford and Altrincham.
An experienced strategic lead of commercial innovation projects, Annette brings a wealth of experience from the private sector, including as a senior buyer for Marks & Spencer and Matalan. This was followed by 10 years as a senior management consultant working with blue chip and start-up companies developing and implementing business growth strategies.
Annette said: “Tatton Group is one of the most dynamic and innovative companies I have seen in the North West, with its ambitious plans for creative and innovative projects that will make a real positive difference to both the regional and national economic picture and the lives of the communities it touches. I am therefore thrilled to have this opportunity to help it deliver on its great promise.”
Janet Nuzumwill be joining Tatton Tech as Chief Operating Officer to help roll out Ultrafast Broadband, along with related technology solutions such as door and gate access solutions and VOIP telephone systems.
