Travis Perkins has named Kieran Griffin, pictured, as its new managing director for its Travis Perkins builders’ merchant division following the retirement of Paul Tallentire.

Griffin has been with the company for 24 years, having first joined as a management apprentice before rising through the ranks to become branch manager and then regional director of the builders’ merchant business.

In 2008, he was named managing director for the group’s interior building products specialist CCF before heading up drainage and heavy building materials supplier Keyline in 2013. Finally, he moved over to industrial pipeline and heating distributor BSS in 2017.

“During his long and successful career with the Travis Perkins Group, Kieran has developed a track record for providing clear and strategic leadership that generates outstanding results and outperforms the market, often in challenging circumstances,” said group CEO John Carter.

“He has delivered particularly outstanding results in his most recent role as managing director for BSS, and I believe he is very well placed to build on our commercial strength and develop our merchant model for future growth.”

Griffin added: “I am very excited to take up this position. My goal is to make it easier for our customers to do business with us so that we make Travis Perkins the first choice for the best builders in town. We have the best people, and so there is no doubt in my mind that by empowering them, we have the capacity to invigorate our focus on customer and service capability.”
