Nick Smith, Parkside managing director, said: “Having put firm foundations for growth in place during 2015, the plan for the coming year is to build on those foundations and see more projects and orders delivered by Parkside within multiple sectors. As a result, it is important we have the people in place who have the skills and abilities to drive that plan and bring it to fruition.”
