Munro, who was previously regional director (SW) at Galliford Try, will lead a new division within the business that will deliver new build schemes.

Munro’s appointment was part of a larger recruitment drive by the company, which has seen the creation of up to 50 new jobs to support Keepmoat’s growth in the south.
