MKM founder and executive chairman, David Kilburn, has been given the Business Leadership Award at the Insider Growth 100 Awards 2016.
The awards ceremony – held at Thorpe Park Hotel and Spa in Leeds – honours businesses across Yorkshire achieving sustained, rapid growth.
David has received the Business Leadership Award as recognition of his stewardship of MKM since setting up the first depot in Hull 21 years ago; MKM is now the UK’s largest independent builders’ merchant.
David Kilburn said: “The Insider Growth 100 Awards are a brilliant way of recognising those firms playing a key role in promoting economic growth in the Yorkshire and Humber area. Being a Hull born-and-bred business, MKM is delighted to be supporting the future prosperity of this incredible city, its economy and communities.
“I commend and thank all of our staff across the country that play such a crucial role in helping us to achieve our aims for the business.”
MKM was also recently ranked #70 in The Sunday Times’ Grant Thornton Top Track 250.
