Your Blackpool Directors

Darren Whiteside

Darren is one of our Branch Directors at MKM Blackpool. With 26 years in merchanting – 16 of those in branch management – he puts an emphasis on always putting the customer first, as well as helping the staff to have the freedom to do what they do best.


Darren likes that MKM gives him the ability to employ the best staff in the area. The aim is to put MKM Blackpool firmly on the map on the Fylde coast for excellent customer service – the best!

Joe Keane

Joe is one of our branch directors at MKM Blackpool and has over 30 years’ experience, entering the industry after leaving school. His focus is always on the customer and how we can best serve them, and he enjoys working the best merchanting team in the Fylde area!


Outside of work, he met his partner at a local rink whilst playing ice hockey. And in work, Joe views our customers as the lifeblood of the business – so come in and have a chat to see how Joe and the team can help.
