Travis Perkins has appointed Nick Pinney as its new property director. His role is effective from 1 November 2021, and he will be reporting to the group’s CFO, Alan Williams.
Pinney will replace Martin Meech in the role, who is retiring from the group at the end of 2021 after 16 years of service.
Pinney first joined the group as divisional property director in 2014 before being promoted to property director for its merchant businesses in 2019.
In his new role, he will oversee the group’s £1bn property business with a portfolio of more than 1,300 buildings. He will also be responsible for the continued growth and development of the group’s estate.
Williams said: “I am really pleased to announce the promotion of Nick, who is a fantastic asset to our team and who has grown with us since he joined the business seven years ago. This appointment is a testament to his talent and skills, and also of our commitment to the development of our own colleague pipeline.
“Nick has already played a key role in developing the property strategy that supports the ambitious growth we have for our businesses, and he will now be responsible for the long term plan to maintain and improve our estate, to make sure it is fit for the future in terms of driving the digital agenda, and that we lead the way on sustainable construction.”
