A new Director for MKM Glasgow

Our Glasgow branch has recently strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Lee Smith, who joins us as branch director at the Nuneaton Street depot.

44-year-old Lee has more than 25 years’ experience in the builders’ merchant industry, having worked at both independents and national chains during his career.

Lee SmithAlthough a native of Kent, Lee has worked in Glasgow for more than 20 years and over that time has go to know the city’s building and construction market well.

He has worked his way up through several roles, started on the trade counter and then moving to the sales office, becoming sales manager and sales director before taking the branch director role with us.

Lee said: “MKM is a premium independent and I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with them, particularly in my adopted city where I have spent so much of my working life.

“There are 14,000 construction companies in the Glasgow area and we need to show them the many benefits of working with us. There is a great team already in place in Glasgow and a real buzz when you walk into the branch. That is our advantage; great people and great customer service.”

Lee takes over from Craig Millar, who successfully launched the Glasgow branch two years ago. Craig retains an interest in Glasgow, but will also focus on growing our branch network across Scotland.
