Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has appointed Clinton Young to the role of National Specification Manager.


Clinton joins the business after 21 years with Marshalls, where he was pivotal in the growth of specifications in London and the South East, including project managing Marshalls’ specification and supply of £10m of landscaping products to the London Olympics. 

In his new role, he will be responsible for growing the specification business, including building relationships with key customers, advising on and delivering best practice and further developing the experienced team. 

Commenting on his new appointment, Clinton says: “I am delighted to join the Charcon and wider Aggregate Industries team. Charcon is recognised as a major player in commercial landscaping, testament to the strong team in place and the company’s customer-focused approach.  

“My extensive experience means I have a deep understanding of the procurement process, from conception through to completion, including how specifiers operate and what makes them tick. I’ve got a strong network in both specification and landscaping, the benefits of which I hope to bring to this new role.” 

In addition to a National Specification Manager, Charcon has also recruited two further Territory Sales Managers. Rachel Thurman, who covers the Wales and West Midlands region, spent 10 years with the Saint Gobain group, most recently working for Jewson as a Civils Development Manager.  Martin Mullan, who covers the London and South East region, joins Charcon from Mea Drainage and has also worked for Brett Landscaping.
