Kingspan Insulation Australia head of marketing and technical services Karim Muri is moving over to the company’s insulated panels division in the US, where he will become director of marketing, covering the US, Canada and Mexico.

The insulated panels division is the largest in Kingspan, making up 65 per cent of turnover. North America is also a growing sector, making up 20 per cent of global turnover (around AU$900 million), up from five per cent in 2006. 

Mr Muri has been with Kingspan in Perth since 2010. Before that he was national marketing manager at Air-Cell Insulation.

He said the move to the US was an “exciting opportunity”.
