Over the years, Reed Boardall has become known for its focus on building strong relationships whether with its customers, suppliers or within its own team. The man responsible for creating this culture and growing the business into the largest single-site temperature-controlled food storage and distribution operation in the UK, is chairman and co-founder Keith Boardall.
While Keith, 86, sadly died in January 2021, the attitudes he embedded with strong family values and a genuine enjoyment of being part of a team, remain. He was a big character, known for being genial and approachable while also having a strong work ethic and a knack for letting colleagues develop their skills.
A family man, Keith’s wife, June, died in 2019, leaving their two children, Marcus and Rowena, four grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
