Kevin Tolson has been appointed as commercial director of building material solutions provider Wienerberger

He follows in the footsteps of Keith Barker, the company’s previous commercial director and current managing director.

Mr Tolson, who joined Wienerberger in February, brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge covering everything from marketing and sales to customer service and strategy development. He has worked for some of the UK’s leading manufacturers of consumer durables and building products, both in the UK and overseas. Boasting a degree in Economics and an MBA specialising in Strategic Management, Tolson has an impressive track record of identifying new opportunities, aligning organisations and working with customers to deliver growth.

He commented: “I’m delighted to be taking on the role of Commercial Director, and I am excited to help develop Wienerberger’s future within the UK. I certainly have some big shoes to fill, but I’m looking forward to the challenge and I’m keen to expand on the previous success in this role.”

Over the last 10 years, Wienerberger UK has delivered strong organic growth following a period of rapid acquisitions in the previous decade.
