Hull KR have continued their impressive plans for the future today by appointing someone with links to football and their rivals Hull FC.
They have appointed David Kilburn to their exciting new board of directors. 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.
MKM sponsor Hull City who play at the MKM Stadium shared with Hull FC so he has been linked with both clubs in the past but now his focus is on Hull KR and he explained why:
“Joining the Board of Hull KR is an opportunity to help create something really special on the East side of the city. As MKM, we have been supporting Hull City Football Club for over 20 years, and it’s time we had a presence closer to our base in the East to compliment it. Big changes are coming to how the league is run, and I’m excited by the plans the club has in embracing them.
“When Paul Sewell asked me if I was interested in joining the board, I was flattered but I reminded him that I’m a football man. However, he soon convinced me that I could contribute, and that he and the rest of the board had plans to take the club on a journey of success. I’m really looking forward to getting involved and understanding much more about the club, and the opportunity to help with its future.”
