MKM thrilled to be Builders’ Merchant Awards Finalists

Builders Merchants Awards 2015 FinalistIt’s great news for this year’s annual Builders’ Merchant Awards with MKM recognised as finalists for two awards – ‘Independent Builders’ Merchant of the Year’ and ‘Branch Manager of the Year’.

The awards are run by the team behind Builders’ Merchants News magazine, with winners to be announced at a London ceremony on the 20th November.

David Kilburn, Executive Chairman for MKM commented “After previously winning the coveted ‘Independent Builders’ Merchant of the Year’ title on seven occasions, we’re just as excited to be nominated and attend the ceremony as the first time round. It’s always a wonderful day and a privilege to attend with so many passionate business minds.”

Ian Kirby, our finalist for ‘Branch Manager of the Year’ has celebrated recent success with his Lincoln branch winning ‘MKM Branch of the Year’ in October. He passed on his thoughts about what makes a successful branch “It’s all about the people – working in a successful organisation like MKM helps people achieve their goals and realise their aspirations. We created a winning team by developing individuals and bringing in people with new ideas and ways of doing things.”

Ian also delivered this inspiring message for future merchants “Always aim high! Never give up, be confident and enjoy what you do. Remember to celebrate the successes.”
