Graham Plumbers’ Merchant has announced the appointment of David Kilby as its new managing director. David, who has more than 25 years’ experience in leadership roles within multinational groups, will be responsible for guiding Graham through a period of transformation as the brand navigates an ever-changing marketplace.
Over his career, David has gained extensive directorial experience across several other Saint-Gobain brands. After initially training as a chartered accountant, David joined BPB plc in 1993 where he rose through various finance and general management roles before taking on the role of managing director in Spain in 2003. From there David became regional managing director for Saint-Gobain’s distribution brand in France, Point P. He also led SIG plc as managing director for mainland Europe before re-joining Saint-Gobain in 2015 as operations director for Jewson.
For the last eighteen months, David has been regional managing director for Saint-Gobain Building Glass for the UK and Nordic Countries, where he guided the business through a significant restructuring programme to improve performance.
“I am delighted to be taking over as managing director at Graham,” commented David on his new role. “Graham is a company with a proud history, a first-class customer focus and excellent employees. I am very much looking forward to taking the business forward through the next stage of its evolution over the coming years.”
