The Team

Kieren Hall

Kieren Hall

Chief Executive Officer
Kieren founded the company alongside Graham and Ryan in 2020, recognising the need for locally produced high quality components for the electric vehicle battery market. Kieren leads the passionate team at ABM from the front. As a graduate of The University of Birmingham, his scientific background, analytical skill set and clear vision have driven the diversification of the Avocet group of companies from a steel trading entity to a specialist distributor of precision foils and now a manufacturer of components with ABM.

Kieren spent 9 years as Sales Director at Avocet Precision metals and helped establish the foil distribution business servicing the lithium-ion manufacturing market. This experience in the battery market was critical in forging Kierens reputation within the industry as an expert in metals for batteries, having unique expertise on metallic raw materials used in new battery technologies.
