Laing O’Rourke has reorganised its European business into three divisions, with Paul Sheffield put in charge of construction and infrastructure project delivery.
The Dartford-based construction giant set out plans earlier this year to streamline its European business and sell its Australian arm.
Now it has revealed the changes, with the business on this continent divided into engineering enterprise led by Sheffield; asset business led by Stephen Harley; and commercial function led by Barry Dye.
Sheffield, formerly Europe Hub managing director, will report directly to chief executive Ray O’Rourke.
The new Sheffield-led division also includes Expanded, the Middle East and Canada operations. Liam Cummins will head its construction stream; and John Wilkinson will look after infrastructure.
Laing O’Rourke said its business strategy and operating plan aimed to deliver 5% operating margin within two years.
