By Murray Pollok22 July 2010
Speedy in the UK has appointed Steve McIntyre as its new group marketing director.
Mr McIntyre joins the business following a five-year spell as marketing director for PPG Architectural Coatings - owner of the Johnstone's and Leyland paint brands. He previously headed up the marketing team at French utility giant Gaz de France (GDF Suez).
Before studying marketing strategy at Chicago North Western University's Kellogg Institute in 2001, Mr McIntyre worked in an international marketing role in the oil and gas sector for almost 20 years, which included several years in the Middle East.
Speedy's chief executive, Steve Corcoran, said Mr McIntyre's experience made him the ideal choice to lead the firm's expansion into industries outside its core client base in construction and into related support services, as well as its presence in the Middle East.
"We have evolved from an equipment hire firm to become a leading business to business support services company within the UK construction sector", said Mr Corcoran, "and are now establishing ourselves as a provider of choice to major asset owners in industries like infrastructure, energy and facilities management.
