Kirkwood Timber Frame appoints Michael Harper as finance director

Aberdeenshire-based timber frame manufacturer and installer, Kirkwood Timber Frame, has appointed Michael Harper as finance director to support its growth strategy as it drives sustainable building and development across the UK, further supporting the journey to net zero.

Strengthening the leadership team, Michael will primarily focus on creating a strategic plan to accommodate the organisation’s predicted project pipeline, while liaising with stakeholders to ensure the business operates to its full potential.

A chartered accountant with more than 12 years’ experience in food manufacturing, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and oil and gas sectors, Michael’s appointment follows Kirkwood Timber Frame’s extremely successful first two years in business, along with its recent expansion into England.

Michael said: “This is an extremely exciting time to be joining Kirkwood Timber Frame. We have invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment which enriches our capabilities and offerings to both builders and developers”.

“Timber and offsite manufacturing are going to play a huge part in sustainable building going forward as we strive towards achieving net zero, and we feel that the growth opportunities here are incredible”.

“I’ve joined a team of highly committed and skilled individuals, and with them, I hope to add real value by ensuring we have solid foundations in place.”

Working closely with stakeholders to ensure the company is strategically placed for growth, Michael will be looking to build on what Kirkwood Timber Frame has already achieved by providing competitively priced products and services, which will help build its reputation as a go to partner for all timber kit needs.

Malcolm Thomson, managing director of Kirkwood Timber frame commented: “Michael is a brilliant asset to the team. His drive and ambition immediately stood out and following our success and credible reputation in Scotland, he will play an important role in driving Kirkwood Timber Frame forward as we look to increase our profile in England”.
