Frank Key Strengthens Management Team

New Team at Frank Key

Midlands-based independent builders merchant, Frank Key has strengthened its management team with two new full-time recruits.

New Group Head of Marketing, Shafiq Sharif, and Group Head of Human Resources, Ruth Housley, bring with them a wealth of experience and have both settled into their roles at the Daybrook, Nottingham branch extremely well.

Shafiq has already made his mark by assisting with the implementation of the Frank Key rebrand, as well as the launch of the renovated Sheffield branch among other projects. His wealth of industry experience and marketing skills will help to strengthen the leadership team as the company continues to develop the business to meet future ambitions.

Ruth joins with a considerable amount of Human Resources (HR) experience from across many sectors. She will play a key role in developing the HR systems, processes and team, as well as ongoing projects such as the company handbook, role profiles and management training programmes.

James Norton is the Group Managing Director at Frank Key: “It is always exciting to welcome new members of staff, bringing with them a fresh perspective and ideas to the business. A very warm welcome to Shafiq and Ruth, you have both settled into your roles extremely well and have already made a big impact at Frank Key.”

Frank Key Group started life in 1907 from Daybrook in Nottingham. It has now expanded into a regional group operating across the Midlands, Lancashire and Yorkshire, with five building supplies branches and 15 plant and tool hire depots.
