Peter Grierson has joined Birmingham-based mechanical and electrical building services provider J S Wright as its new managing director.
Previously national sales director for Wolseley Pipe and Climate, he will take control of the day-to-day running of J S Wright and its sister company, Wright Maintenance, following Phil Leech’s move to chairman.
Based at the Aston headquarters of the employee ownership trust-controlled company, which also has a London office, Grierson has more than 30 years of experience in the sale of building products to the construction industry.
Grierson said: “Having enjoyed a long association as a supplier, I have always regarded J S Wright as a business that conducts itself with integrity, is heavily focused on its people, and ensures that exceptionally high-quality standards remain paramount.
“My outlook from early in my career has been to deliver to the customer exactly what has been promised and build lasting relationships on the strength of the trust which that brings. It involves having people around you with a shared vision, mission and purpose and ensuring that in all discussions and negotiations everyone feels they have been heard and achieved some gain.”
