The Institute of Builders Merchants (IoBM) has welcomed nine new members from Hevey Building Supplies into its ranks.

During a period of renewed leadership and strategy, the IoBM has benefited from steady growth in recent months, it says.

Allan Durning, president of the IoBM, said: “I am always encouraged when new individuals join the Institute as it points towards an increasing professionalism and a desire to progress within the industry.

”As the construction sector seeks to attract new blood by offering rewarding career opportunities, it is our hope that the institute can be a clear beacon to those looking for clear paths of progression.”

The new members, made up of Hevey's management team and staff from its Northampton branch, are: Mark Mulvey, managing director; Neil Hemmington, chairman; Michael McGukin, sales director; David Wright, branch director; Sam Richards, sales office manager; Chris Matthews, civils supervisor; Declan Gavin, operations manager; Jason Bradshaw, timber manager and Paul Landors, branch manager.

Mr Mulvey, Hevey’s managing director, said: “As I started out in the industry, membership with an Institute was a mark of professionalism and capability and it is our intention that this continues to be the case for our employees.

“I am privileged to have such an experienced team and I hope that their new membership to the IoBM can be a valuable tool to further their careers.”
