Warrington-based fit-out specialist Claremont Group Interiors has recruited two business development staff from rival Work Inc.
Sandor Polyhos and Emma Dodsley will be responsible for looking at business development opportunities as well as building relationships with existing clients.
Polyhos spent nine years at Work Inc, latterly as head of business development and major accounts director.
Dodsley spent three years as business development manager at Work Inc prior to joining Claremont. Before Work Inc, she spent two years at Arenson Group and six years at Steelcase.
Philip Westwood, associate director of Claremont, said: "Despite the current economic climate, Claremont has continued to win new business nationwide this year and the appointments of Sandor and Emma will help us to continue driving this forward. They will also take on the important role of building relationships with our existing clients. I'm sure they will prove excellent additions to the team and we look forward to working with them both."
