- Managing Director - Keiran Johns
Keiran has been involved with FIre Defence Servicing from its conception. In his youth Keiran would be found most Saturday mornings in the workshop pre-fabricating pipework for the engineers to install the following week.
After completing University, Keiran started with FDS, firstly on site with the engineers and then in the office with in the admin/sales department and winning additional works. He started to project manage small works up to a value of £50k, then eventually managed a £300k project that was completed 4 weeks ahead of time and £30k under budget. This process taught Keiran the valuable skills required to manage the Business. Finally when Bill Johns decided to take a back seat, Keiran was promted to Managing Director and is now focused on making FDS one of the best fire protection businesses in the UK.
Keiran used to be found at South Molton Rugby Club running around the pitch. However he has now graduated to the senior section meaning only occasionally is he called to get the boots on and can more often be found at the Exeter Chiefs watching them on a Saturday with clients, assuming he isn’t at the horse racing, point to point or national hunt, or sat on the tractor at home tending the grass land.
