McConnell said Ken’s promotion not only strengthens the senior management team but is integral to the continued success of the Roofing & Painting Division and will have a significant impact in taking the multi discipline business forward.

Eamonn McGarvey, managing director of HLS McConnell, said: “Ken’s promotion is well deserved and recognises the major contribution he has made to our business success over many years.

“Ken’s appointment as divisional director is an important step forward for our business. It is key that we recognise the talent within McConnell’s, and that we develop the knowledge, experience and drive that Ken has displayed for the benefit of our valued clients.
