Mr Stewart will replace Chief Executive Officer and founder, Rory Kennard, and will bring broad and extensive experience within the construction industry to the role.
Having worked as a senior leader in a number of large, global companies, Mr Stewart has many years of senior management experience, leading a privately-owned building materials company before consulting to the construction and building products industry over the past five years.
Mr Kennard said the Makinex team was excited to have Mr Stewart take on the new role.
“Mr Stewart will add so much more focus to the role as Chief Executive Officer. His experience in running much larger companies will add the structure and discipline we need to keep achieving the challenging milestones we set ourselves year-on-year.“
“These changes within the company will further strengthen Makinex’s growth in the industry and ethos of providing innovative products improving overall user efficiency,” Mr Kennard said.
