MKM Building Supplies in Chelmsford has boosted its team with the appointment of David Thurston and Steve Carvell as Branch Directors.
Bringing with them over four decades of combined experience in the builders’ merchant industry, the appointments represent a boost to the Chelmsford branch and MKM network as a whole. They will join current Director Mark Ward, supporting MKM Chelmsford’s offering to both trade and the public.
Having held two prior roles at builders’ merchants, David brings an immense 31 years of experience in the sector to his new position. Joining in November 2014, Steve’s background with MKM includes being Business Development Manager and Sales Director. Prior to this, he was involved with a brick manufacturer as Area Sales Manager for the regions of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and East London.
The principle aim of the new appointments is to cement MKM’s position on the map in Chelmsford and the surrounding area, replicating the success the company has seen elsewhere in England. The pair will focus on boosting the delivery service, stock profile and customer service, with the aim of making the branch the stand-out builders’ merchant in the area. With their sales experience, David and Steve have also set their sights on driving forward and setting an agenda for their sales team.
David said: “Steve, Mark and I want to ensure MKM Chelmsford is the first choice destination for the trade and public in Chelmsford and the surrounding area. Hopefully, with our combined experience, we can build on MKM’s recent local and national success. It’s a truly exciting time to be part of MKM.”
Steve said: “The role here at Chelmsford is a great personal opportunity. MKM clearly is an ambitious company pointing in the right direction. Mark, Steve and I will be dedicating our efforts towards further establishing MKM in the area, driving sales and assisting with the company’s national growth plan.”
