Replacing Robert Muir

E P Barrus has announced the appointment of Graham Knox as its new chief executive officer, following an extensive search process.

Graham will replace Robert Muir, when he retires from Barrus at the end of December this year, after 33 years with the company.

Barrus says Graham brings a huge amount of relevant experience, having had a successful career in heavy trucks, industrial & marine engines and transmissions. 

Graham started his career as an engineer with a custom builder of trucks and buses. He moved from engineering through after sales service to sales, and then on to senior management positions in engineering companies.

From 4th September, Graham will be spending time getting to know Barrus’ customers and teams, prior to starting a more office-based handover. There will be opportunities to meet Graham as he will be visiting various trade shows including SALTEX at the NEC.

Graham said, “I am truly honoured and excited to be joining the team at Barrus. I want to express my gratitude to the board for entrusting me with this role and to Robert Muir for his remarkable 33 years of leadership with the company. Barrus has a rich history and a reputation for excellence in various industries, and I am eager to contribute my experience to develop the company further.

"Over the next few months, I am looking forward to immersing myself in Barrus' operations, meeting our valued customers, getting to know the talented individuals who make this company thrive. I am looking forward to having the time to get to know our customers and stakeholders. My goal is to ensure a seamless transition and to lead Barrus with the same dedication and passion that is the hallmark of the company."

E P Barrus Ltd Chairman, Tara Glen said, "The Board looks forward to Graham building on the phenomenal leadership that Robert Muir has given the company. Robert will continue to lead Barrus until he retires at the end of December this year. With Graham joining us now we are able to manage an orderly handover and give Graham an opportunity to visit many of our customers before he takes over leadership responsibility”.
