Kitchen manufacturer Omega Kitchens has appointed James Murray to its board as a non-executive director.
Murray, aged 26, qualified as a chartered accountant while working at accountancy firm KPMG.
In December 2015, he moved from KPMG to oversee strategic plans and investments at the Murray Family Office and Murray Investments Limited, where he is also a director.
He is also a non-executive director of Leeds-based property developers Sterling Capitol.
Chairman of Omega Sir Bob Murray said: “I founded Omega Kitchens in 1996, and am delighted that my son James is now joining the board and will work closely with me in the future.
“I have no doubt, that James will prove to be a great asset to the company and will also contribute to its long-term wellbeing and continued growth.”
James Murray added: “Omega is celebrating 21 years in business so it’s an honour for me to be joining such a successful company and leader in the kitchen sector at this time.
“It is the people at Omega that make all the difference. It is their expertise, skills and commitment that have made the company so stable, reliable and a brand leader in terms of product design, innovation and service over many years, and I look forward to continuing our family connection and commitment.”
