Stuart and Malcolm Forbes are delighted to announce the promotion of Kevin Herring to CEO of F. Donald Forbes & Co. Kevin Herring joined Forbes in 1988 and was made a director in 2004. A board member at Retra for many years, Kevin has an in-depth understanding of the industry, champions a service-led company mind set and has played an integral role in the growth of the business over the years.

Stuart Forbes says “Promoting Kevin to this role was a natural progression as he brings both invaluable internal knowledge and exceptional external expertise to the table. For a number of years he has been a loyal, prominent member of our board of directors. Kevin has impressive business acumen and instinctive leadership skills, and we are hugely excited about driving the business forwards with him as our CEO.”

Forbes is a long-established family company with an expansive nationwide infrastructure and a strong client-focus in all areas of their service delivery. Their business strategy has enabled exponential organic growth over the years, whilst acquisitions of other companies or rental accounts continue to be intrinsic to their on-going vision. Kevin's new appointment has come at an opportune time for the rental market where there is huge potential to harness from Generation Rent.

Kevin Herring says “I am both thrilled and honoured to be appointed CEO of Forbes and I look forward to building upon the incredible achievements of the past 93 years. We have extremely strong foundations, dedicated staff and exciting plans to take with us into the next chapter of Forbes’ story.”
