BUSINESS hub bosses have bolstered their team to support growing operations.

Daniel Sanderson has arrived at Business Central as operations support assistant.

Officials say Mr Sanderson will help with the day-to-day running of the Darlington-based development, which is providing space for an increasing number of firms looking to boost their presence in the region.

Having previously worked as an operations assistant for a sportswear distributor in Durham, 23-year-old Mr Sanderson said he was delighted to have made the move to Darlington.

He said: “It’s a proud moment for a business owner when they get their own office and I want to help them feel comfortable.

“I’ll help tenants by setting up phones and assisting with IT problems, as well as setting up rooms for business meetings.”

Firms already at the hub include JCM Specialist Glazing, which supplies windows and doors to the North-East and beyond, and draughting firm Fabritek, which worked on structural details for Big Ben’s renovation.
