Pullen will assume his new position within the company from 1 January, working alongside his predecessor Guy Williams until the end of March to ensure a smooth handover.

He will report to Ruud Joosten, member of the executive committee responsible for decorative paints.

Pullen joined AzkoNobel in October 2010 as marketing director for decorative paints in UK and Ireland. In 2011, his role was expanded to encompass the rest of the Northern Europe region.

He has led teams running the Dulux ‘Let’s Colour’ and Cuprinol ‘Cheer It Up’ campaigns, and the overall development of the decorative paints business strategy.

Pullen said: "The chance to lead the UK and Ireland business is a great opportunity and I am really excited to be appointed into the role.

"I know it comes with a huge responsibility to continue the great success we have had over many years in the UK and Ireland and to contribute to the future success of AkzoNobel decorative paints globally."

The appointment comes as the company prepares to relocate 70 staff to the Netherlands in January, and reduce from eight regions to five. The relocation has involved a top-level restructuring and the reduction of senior management teams.
