Spanwall’s managing director Keith Toner is retiring from his role after more than 50 years’ service and taking up a new role as non executive director.

Keith first joined the company aged 17 and has been managing director since 1995, overseeing Spanwall’s transformation into a significant player in the facades manufacturing market.

Spanwall’s current manufacturing director David Clark will be taking up the reins after he re-joined the organisation at the end of 2021 from The McAvoy Group, where he held several positions including manufacturing director and head of innovation.

During his role as manufacturing director, David has focused on transforming Spanwall’s manufacturing capabilities, including introducing new digital technologies into the business.

Keith commented: “I have been privileged to have had the opportunity to be involved with some of the most iconic buildings in the world. Fifty-one years ago, I joined Spanwall as an apprentice and since then have witnessed the business go from strength to strength. I know Spanwall has a great future and feel very optimistic about what’s to come.”

David brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role, and I look forward to watching Spanwall continue to thrive and succeed under his direction.”

David added: “As a business we are hugely grateful to Keith for his commitment to Spanwall for the past 51 years. His leadership and passion for our business has been instrumental in shaping Spanwall into the company it is today, ensuring we are well positioned to achieve our ambitious growth strategy.

“I am hugely excited about the opportunity that lies ahead for myself within the company. Having started my career here almost 25 years ago, it has felt like I have returned home again. I look forward to continuing to develop and grow the business to ensure we retain our market-leading position.”
