Robson Handling Technology welcomes Julie Kenny CBE as Chairman

 

Julie brings with her a wealth of experience from an impressive working background. In her early years Julie forged a successful career as a litigation lawyer before changing direction and founding £30m turnover South Yorkshire manufacturer Pyronix Limited, which she sold in 2016.

 

In recognition of her contribution to business in the region Julie received a CBE and Honorary Doctorate from Sheffield Hallam University.

Julie takes the reins from outgoing Chairman Bill Speirs, who made a significant contribution to shaping the future of the business.

Keen to build on this, Julie said “Robson is grateful for the contribution made by Bill and thanks him. The outstanding customer focus, reputation for innovative solutions and unique group expertise with Robson Site Service and RJD Engineering provide an exciting and excellent opportunity.” 

Jeff Hudson, CEO of Robson welcomed Julie stating, “To attract someone of Julie’s calibre is testament to the strength and potential of Robson in its markets. With a CBE to her name, along with being the Vitalise Businesswoman of the Year in 2013 and PWC Private Businesswoman of the Year 2014 Julie will be a great asset to Robson, continuing to drive the business forward – further improving the solutions and services that we offer.”
