(L-R): New MD Kevin Swann with Kevin Restell

Kentec has appointed Kevin Swann as its new Managing Director. He succeeds Kevin Restell, who is retiring after more than 25 years with the business and its parent company Hochiki.

Kevin Swann has 28 years’ experience in the industry having been closely involved in the protocol standard evolution at Apollo and has also held a number of senior positions within UTC Fire and Security as Managing Director (Global) and Regional Manager for UK and Ireland.

“My immediate priority will be on focusing the business on how we can make life even better for our customers, installers and partners,” said Kevin Swann.

Kevin Restell, the outgoing Managing Director said: “I am leaving the company in very good hands and wish Kevin the very best of luck.”

The appointment of a new Managing Director coincides with the 100-year anniversary of Hochiki, and Kentec’s investment in the Taktis fire panel.
