New managing director at Astra Group

Astra Group has welcomed David Mulligan to the business, in the role of managing director of its signage and digital division.

It is a significant appointment for Astra Group, with Mr Mulligan bringing over 15 years’ signage and manufacturing expertise to the business.

In the newly created role, Mr Mulligan will be responsible for driving Astra Group forward in its next phase of expansion, as the business increases its national and international footprint and further extends its suite of best-in-class digital and traditional signage services. He will be responsible for all design, fabrication, and installation services including the newly created project delivery team led by Tony Bright, which allows the business to take further works on as principal contractor and continue with its expansion journey.

Mr Mulligan said: “I am delighted to join Astra Group, a well-established and respected company, and to have the opportunity to support, advise, and strengthen a wonderful team. 

“The business has enjoyed significant growth over the last three years, resulting from the business’s unique position to deliver a truly first-class end-to-end offer, combined with exceptional client service.  It is an upward curve we are committed to sustaining as we look to continued expansion in the UK and overseas, working with clients in a broad range of sectors.”

Coinciding with the appointment of Mr Mulligan is the promotion of Stephen Burns to operations director. It is a noteworthy achievement for the former head of production, with Mr Burns having joined Astra Group little more than six months previous, in September 2023. 

Speaking on the announcement, CEO of Astra Group, Jim Kerr, said: “It is with great pleasure that I welcome Dave to the business as managing director of our expanding signage and digital division. A people-person through and through, he is a fantastic addition to the team bringing with him not only extensive industry expertise and a proven commitment to delivering excellence as standard, but a leadership style that is incredibly fitting with Astra Group. He has already made a fantastic impact, further positively shaping the business for future growth.”
