Your Alnwick Directors

Gordon Webster

Gordon started in merchanting at the age of 16 as a plumbing and heating estimator in North Shields, he has now spent nearly 40 years in the trade.


Gordon’s career includes many different positions over the years, but he did spend a good chunk managing a branch in a national builders’ merchant network.


In 2001 a meeting with MKM founders David Kilburn and Peter Murray developed into an exciting opportunity for Gordon and the opening of MKM Alnwick. Joining from a national, Gordon thought it was all too good to be true, but is happy to say he still loves his role as Branch Director and it’s exactly as they had originally promised.


The MKM branch in Alnwick opened in 2001 with 7 staff, in 2011 Alnwick won MKM Branch of the Year and Gordon now employs 21, so they’re still going from strength to strength.


Outside of work Gordon enjoys the odd holiday (his words not ours) and also coaches junior football teams holding English FA Coaching Badge Level 1.

Ian Carr

Ian joined MKM in July of 2001 and has spent his career building an impressive background and experience in the building supplies industry in the North Northumberland area.

Ian is Branch Director of our Alnwick branch, where he specialises in external sales – which means he gets out and about most of the time, looking after his accounts at their local sites and meeting, helping and advising new and existing customers.

Outside of Ian’s MKM world he enjoys socialising, football and golf, and enjoys spending time with his three daughters (that must keep him busy!).
