Gazeley has made a number of changes to its top-level management team.

The Wal-Mart owned shed developer has appointed ex-Siemens business development head, Jonathan Priestley, as its business development director.

It has also promoted staff internally. Richard Fitzpatrick will become commercial director and Nick Cooper will take on Fitzpatrick’s previous role, as chief of Gazeley’s involvement in the ASDA developments.

Priestley joins Gazeley from Siemens Logistics and Assembly Systems, where he was head of business development and marketing for Northern Europe. His role at Gazeley will include developing customer relationships, marketing and developing business.

Fitzpatrick has worked at Gazeley since 2002, taking over responsibility for the ASDA distribution developments in 2005. In his new role as commercial director, he will be responsible for all construction delivery matters and supplier liaison in the UK.

Cooper returns to take on Fitzpatrick’s previous role from Frankfurt, where he has been working as development director for Gazeley.
