Marley has appointed Kevin Taylor as training and technical support manager.
With a wealth of experience in roofing and construction, Taylor gained his early expertise ‘on the tools’ before entering further education as a lecturer both at Bolton College and Leeds College of Building, where his apprentices gained success in the National SkillBuild competition on several ocassions.
Taylor subsequently worked at the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), heading up technical and training, whilst driving change to reduce roof failure as well as working on the extensive BS5534 revision.
An accomplished author, Taylor penned the roofing bible, ’Roof Tiling and Slating – A Practical Guide’, which is widely used in training centres and colleges across the UK.
Kevin Taylor said: “I’m looking forward to working with Marley, it will be great to be part of a team again. Having worked in so many different areas of the industry over 40 years, I appreciate what’s needed to achieve a good quality roof – and that’s everyone working together.”
