Paul has an enviable 31 years in the merchant trade under his belt. He’s certainly earned his stripes when it comes to building, timber, plumbing and heating products (and the list goes on).
He’s excited about the opportunity to work with the new team, and is extremely proud to be joining the MKM brand and family.
Outside of his role at MKM Paul relaxes with a round of golf, or taking the new rottweiler puppy out. After all that walking there’s no wonder that he also says going for meals is a favourite pastime.
Mark has a solid background in the building industry, clocking up over 33 years with various merchants before joining MKM for the opening of MKM Sharston, on the outskirts of Manchester.
His experience means he’s well known in the local area, and has built a team utilising relationships and friendships made over the years. We have no doubt that this combination of skills, experience and good friendships will stand the branch head and shoulders above the competition.
Outside of work, Mark is keen to explore new countries, having recently visited Australia, Thailand, Singapore and South Africa.
He also keeps in good shape running in the region of 10k 3 times a week!
