Hull KR have made another impressive appointment to their brand new board of directors today as they look to impress IMG.
They have appointed David Kilburn.
David joins the recently appointed, James McNicol alongside Chair Paul Sewell, the club’s Chief Executive, Paul Lakin, and Robins’ owner Neil Hudgell.
After founding MKM Building Supplies in 1995, David has grown the business to become the UK’s fastest growing builders’ merchant with over 100 branches, operating the length and breadth of the UK.
Happy with this appointment, Hull KR Chair Paul Sewell had huge praise for the Kilburn as he made a bold statement about what he can bring to the club:
‘David Kilburn is one of the outstanding entrepreneurs and business people of his generation. He has been an associate and friend for over 40 years, so I know he will bring experience, wisdom and balance to our new board.
‘We feel this a great start to the recruitment of our board, and we will add more to create a team working together as one. Discussions with others, to give us the balance we need, are progressing well, and we anticipate to be able to make further announcements shortly.
‘Alongside James, we are all delighted that they have chosen to join us, and we can’t wait to get cracking in February.’
