New MD at the helm of Builders’ Merchant Company

Published:  25 September, 2014

Builders' Merchant Company Ltd, the North Lincolnshire-based independent builders’ merchant, has promoted its commercial director Duncan Thomson to managing director.

Mr Thomson has worked in the industry for nearly 30 years, the past four being with BMCo. Moving straight from college, he joined Travis and Arnold as a commercial trainee and continued with Travis Perkins through their management structure for 12 years.

He then moved to Build Center for a further eight years. His next move was into the independent sector, working for Pagets' Builders Merchant in Sheffield for six years, before joining Builders' Merchant Company in 2010 as its general manager.

Mr Thomson was promoted to commercial director in 2012 and has now been promoted to managing director in September 2014, and is looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.
