Construction and regeneration group Morgan Sindall is to join up its construction business Morgan Ashurst and infrastructure services business Morgan Est to create a new enlarged division.
Morgan Ashurst managing director, Graham Shennan, will head-up the new division as managing director. His appointment means that Morgan Est’s managing director, Mark Cutler, leaves the business this week.
Both Morgan Sindall’s construction and infrastructure services divisions are increasingly working together on larger and more complex projects in sectors such as rail, aviation and defence
The new division will sit alongside Morgan Sindall’s three other divisions of fit out, affordable housing and urban regeneration which are supported by the Group’s specialist investment unit, Morgan Sindall Investments.
Shennan, who joined Morgan Sindall in 2002, is a chartered civil engineer and has extensive senior management experience in construction, civil engineering, plant and design.
“I am really excited about the development of this new Morgan Sindall division which will enable the Group to provide a more focused and integrated service to clients and our JV partners,” said Morgan Sindall chief executive Paul Smith.
“It will transform the way our infrastructure and construction divisions work together and creates significant new opportunities for further business growth and development.”
