A strong appointment for the next phase of Multinail’s growth.
Jim Holland has been announced as the next CEO of Multinail. Peter Taylor, the company’s founder and CEO, announced that he will be moving away from day-to-day operations from September. He will retain overall direction of the Taylor family-owned company in his role as Non-Executive Chairman of the Board.
Holland’s appointment follows a worldwide search. From Seattle in the US, Holland has spent more than three decades in various roles in a BHP/BlueScope Steel company. He has spent significant periods of time working in Australia and, with over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry, will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to his role at Multinail.
The company’s announcement declared that Holland has been “entrusted with maintaining the vitality, focus of innovation and energy that make Multinail unique in the market”, and the appointment comes at a time when the company is in a period of strong growth.
Taylor will not, however, be moving into a hands-off role. “While I’m stepping away from day-to-day operations at Multinail, I’ll retain my position as Non-Executive Chairman of the Board. I’m proud of the company Multinail has become. Our staff are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate about their work. We look forward to working with Jim to further strengthen and grow Multinail,” Taylor says.
Multinail has doubled revenue over the past five years and stands poised to grow further, with its leading combination of frame and truss services and products. “This is an exciting time for Multinail,” says Trent Taylor, Multinail’s COO. “We offer something unique in the market – a strong orientation to customers, a commitment to innovation and a youthful energy that pervades everything we do. This is a generational change that will position the Taylor family and Multinail strongly for the future.”
The company announced the change to their fabricators with a special information package that comprehensively explained the changes and what that would mean for the company structure. The Taylor family made it clear that they would be working alongside Holland during his tenure to strengthen and extend the company’s position in the market.
Holland himself is looking forward to the opportunity. “I am very impressed by Multinail,” he says. “It’s a very successful, family-run business with a staff that are knowledgeable and committed to their work. I believe strongly in doing the right thing by staff and customers. I am very attracted to this company because I believe my values align strongly with those of the Taylor family and staff of Multinail.”
