Selco Builders Warehouse has appointed David Lennon as its new commercial director, coming from the same position he held at retail giant Morrisons.

David will also be a member of Selco’s Senior Leadership Team, headed up by chief executive Howard Luft.

He has extensive experience operating within the trade and DIY sector, including working as head of commercial development for the Kingfisher Group’s Asia division in Hong Kong and as category director for B&Q in the UK.

David, who will lead Selco’s category and marketing functions, said: “It’s a real honour to become part of the team which has worked tirelessly to successfully establish Selco as a go-to destination for tradespeople across the UK.

“I genuinely think it’s a great moment to be joining the business. It’s been a testing few years for the sector, and the entire economy, on the back of Covid and the cost of living crisis.

“Now, as we start to see signs of the market recovering, there is excitement at the opportunities which lie ahead for Selco, and a major ambition throughout the whole business and the Grafton Group to deliver more success.

“We have a high number of innovations and developments in the pipeline, including further developing the overall customer proposition and exploring opportunities for direct sourcing, which we are confident will have a positive impact on our offering.”
