Keyline appoints new managing director

Published:  20 January, 2014

Keyline has appointed Kieran Griffin as its new managing director, as the builders’ merchant looks to build on its success over the past year.

Mr Griffin moves from Keyline’s parent company, Travis Perkins, where he was commercial director.

After a successful career in the building materials industry, spanning more than 19 years, Mr Griffin will now lead the company he joined as a management trainee in 1995.

In 2005 he took up the role of regional director for the Midlands and his successful results here saw Mr Griffin elevated to the position of managing director of CCF, and then Travis Perkins Midlands region in 2012.

Mr Griffin said: “I’m very enthusiastic about having the opportunity to lead Keyline at such an exciting time. Ambitious plans are in place for us to further develop and expand the business in order to cement our position as the market leader and we will continue to pride ourselves on the high standards and great value we offer to our customers. Our dedicated rail division also continues to grow in significance, and we expect a very fruitful and successful 2014.”
