Wienerberger Welcomes new Managing Director

Keith Barker has been appointed as Managing Director of Wienerberger, the UK provider of building material solutions, following a wider European management reorganisation, which will see current incumbent, Harald Schwarzmayr, move on as COO of Pipelife North & Western Europe.

Barker, currently Wienerberger UK’s Commercial Director, has been on the UK board for more than seven years and has played a key role in shaping the strategy of the business. He will assume the new role of Managing Director from September.

He commented: “I’m delighted to be taking on the role of Managing Director of Wienerberger’s UK operations. Having worked within the senior management team for over seven years, I am excited to be taking this next step and helping further shape and mould Wienerberger’s future within the UK. We’ve seen some fantastic growth under Harald’s time as Managing Director and I’m keen to continue to expand on this success.”

Over the last ten years Wienerberger UK has delivered strong organic growth following a period of rapid acquisitions in the previous decade. This is not only a significant contributor to Wienerberger group revenue but is also enabling the company to focus on areas such as health and safety and the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM). Wienerberger UK is also spearheading the Digital Construction movement, particularly on supply chain management and marketing.
