He intends to use his position on the board to rebuild consumer trust in a time of economic and political uncertainty.

Wilson said, “I am delighted to be part of the KBSA board and look forward to making the association more relevant to members in Scotland.

“We have plans to introduce opportunities for like-minded retailers to meet, share best practice and network, details of these meetings will be announced soon” he added.

Acting CEO Uwe Hanneck said: “Keith will be a valuable addition to the board as we drive forward our ambitious plans for growth. We remain committed to delivering value and benefits for our retail members, which will directly impact on the success of their businesses.”
