“I am truly honoured and excited to be joining the team at Barrus,” says Knox. “I want to express my gratitude to the board for entrusting me with this role and to Robert Muir for his remarkable 33 years of leadership with the company. Barrus has a rich history and a reputation for excellence in various industries, and I am eager to contribute my experience to develop the company further.

“Over the next few months, I am looking forward to immersing myself in Barrus‘ operations, meeting our valued customers, getting to know the talented individuals who make this company thrive. I am looking forward to having the time to get to know our customers and stakeholders.”

E P Barrus chair Tara Glen adds: “We are delighted to welcome Graham as our new chief executive in January. Graham shares the Barrus ethos with a very relevant background of experience and an excellent track record of delivery.
