Your Durham Directors

Paul Brooks

With over 40 years of industry experience under his belt, Paul became co-branch director at MKM Durham in October 2013. His career actually started when he was just 16 though, when he joined builders’ merchant Ferguson Foster as a sales office junior. He loves the buzz of a busy, successful business, and meeting new and interesting characters every day.


Outside of MKM, Paul is a busy bee. He’s the director of a charitable trust, a mentor for sixth formers at schools in Durham and Yorkshire as part of a ‘Building Life Skills’ programme, and he co-runs an U17s football team. When he’s not doing any of this, he enjoys watching football, horse racing and a bit of travel.

Steven Bartle

Steven has spent most of his career working for both independent and national merchants before joining MKM in 2013 as co-director with Paul Brooks. What he loves most about his branch at Durham is his staff. He says they are the best staff who will always drive the best service, as knowledge and experience is key to driving service and efficiency.
