Daniel Lowans, Managing Director Hire, Travis Perkins

Elected to the HAE Tools, Plant and Equipment Board 2022

I have over 11 years of experience working in the building materials distribution sector for the Travis Perkins Group. During this time I have held a variety of commercial, supply chain and general management roles and within all of these I have delivered change, efficiencies and growth.

I took up my first role in the Hire sector as Managing Director of the Travis Perkins business unit 18 months ago which involved joining the HAE as a Board member. It has been a pleasure to be made to feel so welcome within the Association and to have been able to provide expertise to actively support initiatives on areas such as plant safety, working closely with other members.

I would like to use my experience and passion and the learnings that we have at Travis Perkins to help drive further development across the Hire sector through HAE. It is important that the sector continues to modernise to maintain its relevance and appeal in an ever changing world, with new demands in key areas such as diversity, sustainability, safety and talent management. All of these provide our businesses with big challenges but can be tackled by a continued focus on moving forward.
