Kevin joined the company on the Graduate Management Training Scheme in July 1983 and following his training was appointed Pant Manager in Readymix South London looking after production, transport and site liaison for 11 Readymix plants. Then to gain some commercial experience, Kevin did a 12- month stint in Sales, before returning to his roots as Operations Manager. During this period Kevin also managed to study for his Certificate in Professional Management with the Open University.

In the mid 1990’s Kevin took up the department heads role of Production Manager with Readymix South Coast looking after all aspects of operations for over 20 Readymix plants. By 2000 under Brian Million, South Coast had joined with Home Counties where Kevin became the Area Manager then  Commercial Manager. As a result of Project Rock, Kevin took on Fleet & Maintenance Manager initially in the Southwest Region which included Cornwall then London & Southeast Region.

Over recent years Kevin’s role has evolved into Engineering & Maintenance Manager for the South UK. Kevin can be proud of what he has achieved over his years with Cemex, building new Readymix plants at Crossness, Winchester, Margate, Heathrow T2, Stephney, Southall, Moron Valance, Bramshill and
