Keiran Johns
Keiran JohnsManaging Director
Keiran has been involved with FIre Defence Servicing from its inception. 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 embarked on his career with FDS, firstly on site with our engineers then later in the office within the admin/sales department, 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. When Bill Johns decided to take a back seat, Keiran was promoted to Managing Director and is now focused on making FDS the best fire protection business 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.
