Tony Battle

Joint Managing Director

Tony is Kind & Company’s Joint Managing Director. Part of the company since 1989 when he joined as a Surveyor, he built his skills and experience following the company career path to become a Director in 2001 and joint MD in 2006. He is a perfect illustration of how Kind & Company nurtures and encourages talent.

Tony left school in a grip of an Irish recession, knowing his carpentry skills would not put food on the table at the time! He instead went to University in Dublin to study construction from a professional viewpoint. After graduating Tony left Ireland and arrived in London to help fill the professional shortage in the construction industry and within the year joined Kind & Company.

Having progressed through the roles of Surveyor, Assistant Projects Manager, Projects Manager and Director, and now Joint MD Tony has extensive technical knowledge and a substantial practical understanding of the commercial aspects of construction.

With all this experience, Tony still gets a buzz from seeing projects go from an early expression of interest to ultimate completion and handover. He recognises as the industry evolves the company must also adapt to future challenges and put in place processes and systems that help deliver the expectations of our clients.

As Joint MD, his responsibilities primarily sit at the front end of the process with identifying and generating new business opportunities, delivering and negotiating realistic tenders, and managing the external image of the company. Alongside this predictably, he is heavily involved in developing the strategic direction of the company.

Highly regarded in the industry, having become a Member of the Chartered Institute of Building in 2000, Tony is also a member of the NHBC Foundation Advisory Committee and regularly addresses organisations such as the Housing Forum. He has been a school governor, chair of governors and served on many charity trustee/committees over the years.
