Blue Group has appointed Adrian Murphy as Group chief executive officer. Working closely with the four owner directors, Murphy will initially look to bring increased coordination across the various businesses within the Group, as well as develop a strong growth strategy.
Last year was another record for Blue in terms of sales, with a combined turnover in excess of £100M. Murphy has previously worked in a number of senior leadership positions in the capital equipment market, most recently as chief executive of Hewden, but also as chief operating officer of Speedy and managing director of Hilti for the UK and Ireland. He also has domestic and international service and manufacturing experience.
Blue Group supply equipment brands such as Powerscreen, Doppstadt and Terex Fuchs across the UK and Ireland. The business has eight offices throughout the territory, supplying capital equipment as well as spare parts via its dedicated facility in Warrington, Cheshire. Murphy will assume responsibilities across all offices, strategically developing the company’s product portfolio and service package in order to further support Blue’s customer base.
