Accounts manager Gill Smith has been appointed financial director, and business support manager Nicola Watson has been made a director.
Justin Birchall, managing director of the award-winning family business, which is based in Burnley, Lancashire, said: “Both Gill and Nicola will be gaining new responsibilities, but with over 20 years of Birchall’s experience between them, this puts them on a great platform to drive the business forward.”
