Skanska has unveiled its restructured management team, with Thomas Faulkner taking board-level responsibility for its civils operations.
The changes follow the departure of executive vice president Paul Chandler who has joined Wates as group managing director for construction.
Former SRW engineering services managing director Martin Neeson joins the board and becomes an executive vice president (EVP) with overall responsibility for the company’s services operations. Existing EVP Gregor Craig will take on executive responsibility for building operations.
Following Neeson’s appointment, Russell Hallmark has been promoted from business director at SRW engineering services, Skanska’s mechanical and electrical operations, to managing director.
Helen Martin will become managing director of Skanska’s development business. She takes over from Andreas Lindelöf, who will be moving to another unannounced role within the Skanska group.
“These changes demonstrate yet again Skanska’s strength in nurturing and developing talent, rotating our people to harness their broader business experience, as well as our strong culture of promoting from within,” said Skanska UK chief executive Mike Putnam.
“We remain focused on helping our customers deliver on their commitments. We have a robust, stable business and we perform consistently in the top tier of the sector. We also have the high-quality people to sustain that stability and maximise the opportunities that will present themselves over the next five years.”
