We are delighted to announce that Richard Burnett will be joining KB Event as Managing Director on 24th February 2022. Current MD, Stuart McPherson, will remain in the business as KB Event’s CEO, supporting Richard and the KB team and continuing to work closely with our clients.
During Richard’s 37-year career in logistics, he has worked for many well-known businesses including TDG, Wincanton, Hays and Samworth Brothers, looking after some of the most prestigious high street names such as Heinz, GSK, Tesco and adidas. His most recent prior appointment was that of Chief Exec at the Road Haulage Association (RHA). During his 7-year tenure he transformed the organisation, working tirelessly for the logistics industry, growing the RHA’s profile and membership significantly.
As KB Event continues to adapt and to overcome the challenges presented by both Brexit and the pandemic, Richard’s appointment as Managing Director brings with it a fresh approach and heralds the start of a new and exciting era for us all.
We welcome Richard aboard and wish him every success in his new role with us.
