h&b recruit Steve Parkins from CRH

Friday 23rd March 2018

h&b have announced Steve Parkins will join the group from May 1st.
Steve has a wealth of knowledge in the industry and is currently the Procurement Director for CRH Europe Distribution. In previous roles, he has also held Executive Board Procurement Director positions at Grafton Merchanting GB and Saint-Gobain Building Distribution UK.
'I am really excited to be joining h&b at such an interesting time. The group is experiencing huge growth and the independent merchants are a brilliant alternative to the national brands. I aim to bring my experience and structure to the group, whilst still nurturing the individual character of the members and the entrepreneurial spirit, that make h&b such a fantastic organisation' commented Steve.
Peter Buttle the chairman of h&b summarised 'getting Steve on board is a real coup for us. He brings with him a wealth of experience that will really enhance our existing central organisation. When we recruited Nick Lander we made a real step change as a group, we believe the two of them together will massively advance our position in the market.’
h&b merchant group was founded 20 years ago and has now grown to over 74 members, with a combined turnover approaching a billion pounds.
