Trojan appoints former TBI chief executive as chairman

Trojan, the Swansea-based group that provides multichannel etail sales and fulfilment, contract electronic manufacturing, and asset recovery through refurbishment and recoup, has appointed former chief executive of airport giant TBI, as its non-executive chair person.

Keith Brooks from Cardiff brings his wealth of experience to Trojan, to play a key role in the further expansion of the already successful group.

Brooks was chief executive of the airport owner and operator TBI plc for 11 years. During his tenure at the then FTSE250  company, the value grew from £40m to £800m, at which point the company was sold.

His career has also seen Brooks spend nine years as a partner with PWC in Cardiff and London, during which time he acted as lead adviser on the flotation of two PLCs, and the purchase of Tower Colliery by its workforce.

Brooks has held other similar senior positions, working from both the UK and abroad, and is extremely well suited to assist Trojan’s senior management in their ambitions to expand further, and truly leverage the opportunity that its new Kings Dock facility provides.

Clive Murphy, managing director of Trojan, said:

“We are extremely pleased to announce that Keith Brooks has been appointed chair for our board. Keith forms part of a wider process of strengthening our leadership team, and I’m very much looking forward to working closely with him.”

Keith Brooks said:

“I’m delighted to become chair of Trojan’s board. Trojan is already an impressive enterprise, but clearly has massive potential to expand its services and reach. Working with the board, I will play my part in implementing further strategies to help take the business forward.”
