Jewson appoints new Managing Director

Jewson has today announced the appointment of Peter Stringer to the role of Managing Director. The appointment of Peter Stringer follows Jewson’s acquisition of Build Center earlier this year, creating an enhanced network of over 600 branches.

Peter Stringer brings a wealth of experience to Jewson, having worked for 30 years in the merchant sector, specifically within the Saint-Gobain business. Peter has both operational and branch expertise to draw from, having started working in the yard before progressing to Branch Manager at three separate Jewson branches. Peter then became an Area Manager for Jewson, before moving on to senior management roles, including most recently the Managing Director of Minster.

“Jewson’s large network of branches means there is a need for strong day to day support,” explained Peter Hindle MBE, “Peter Stringer combines a deep knowledge of the industry with a passionate drive to ensure the ongoing development of Jewson. I wish him every success in this role and look forward to working closely with him.”
