In his new role, Matt will look to replicate the success HLA Services has had across Tyneside and Northumberland with a focus on Teesside and North Yorkshire.

The firm is run by Neil Henry and Paul Smith.

Mr Smith, said: “As we continue to develop the team, Neil and I want to make sure that whoever joins fits in with our ambitions, growth plans and, most importantly, our values.

“Matt has a wealth of experience under his belt and will complement, Steve Grehan, business development manager for Tyneside, bringing a fresh approach and valuable skills to hasten our growth.

“Greener technology is key. We want to minimise carbon use and provide customers with an option, for example, offering air source heat pumps as an alternative to a gas boiler.

"As well as having electric charging points at our locations, we now offer this as part of our service to customers and where required, we will also be available to install electric charging points for them.”
