PERI has announced the appointment of Ian Hayes as the new Managing Director of its UK subsidiary.
Hayes succeeds Alasdair Stables, who stepped down at the end of April 2023. Hayes officially joined PERI at the beginning of May and brings with him a wealth of experience from his time in the construction industry.
Before joining PERI, Hayes served as the CEO and Divisional Managing Director of RMD Kwikform for six years. He managed the company’s 1,500 staff and operations in over 40 countries with a turnover of £200 million.
Before that, he held the position of Commercial Services Director at Lafarge, serving on the Aggregates and Concrete UK Executive Board.
PERI expressed confidence in Hayes’ ability to lead the UK subsidiary towards its long-term goals, citing his extensive industry experience and knowledge.
Reflecting on his time at the company, outgoing Managing Director Alasdair Stables said, “It’s been a privilege to work for PERI over the last ten years, and whilst I’m looking forward to my forthcoming sabbatical, I am delighted to handover to Ian. His experience and character suit PERI perfectly, and it’s a great feeling to be leaving the business in such capable hands to care for our customers.”
Hayes expressed his excitement about his new role, stating, “I’m delighted to be joining PERI, a business that is well respected all over the world. Alasdair has successfully led the business over the last 10 years and has grown PERI’s presence in the UK construction market. I’d like to thank him and wish him well for the future. The UK market continues to present new and exciting opportunities for further growth and customer service, which I have great ambition for and look forward to achieving with the entire PERI team.”
