Construction Scotland has announced the appointment of Ken Munro to its Industry Leadership Group (ILG).

Formally recognised by the Scottish Government and its agencies as the representative voice of the industry in Scotland, the ILG brings together key figures from the private and public sector to drive sector growth and industry wide collaboration.

Construction Scotland’s ambition is to support the development and growth of a more sustainable, productive, innovative and profitable construction industry, and to enhance the sector’s relevance and contribution to the growth of the Scottish economy.

Ken Munro is CEO of Stirling-based Superglass, a manufacturer of glass mineral wool insulation products, which became part of the TechnoNICOL Group in 2016.

Before joining Superglass in 2013, Ken spent 16 years in senior management roles with NCR Corporation, and was previously managing director of the education division at Havelock Europa PLC. A graduate of Heriot-Watt University, Ken also chairs the Mineral Wool Manufacturers Association (MIMA) and is a Stirling City Commissioner.

Ken Munro said: “I am delighted to join Construction Scotland’s Industry Leadership Group at what is a very exciting time for the organisation, as it prepares to launch its new strategy. It’s important that the ILG represents the views of the entire construction industry, including supply chain companies like Superglass.

“Insulation also plays a vital role in the future of the sector, as investment in the fabric of our homes and buildings is good for the economy, increases productivity and enhances sustainability – all of which are aims of Construction Scotland.”

Ken Gillespie, chair of Construction Scotland’s ILG, said: “It’s great to be able to welcome Ken onto the group. Through his many years in senior roles in manufacturing and construction, he brings a wealth of experience to the table.

“Following TechnoNICOL’s investment in Superglass, Ken now has an international role, and his success reinforces the ambition that we should be striving for here in Scottish construction. He joins a passionate and committed team who are all very much looking forward to putting our new industry strategy into action.”
