BAM Construct and BAM Nuttall have appointed new chief executives to oversee BAM activities and to grow the BAM brand in the UK.
Graham Cash will become chief executive of BAM Construct on April 1. He succeeds Richard Gregory who retires from the company following 43 years of service, many in senior management positions.
Stephen Fox becomes chief executive of BAM Nuttall, also from April 1. This will allow former chief executive Martin Rogers to concentrate on his Royal BAM Group executive board roles that include the UK and Ireland.
The management boards will be:
- BAM Construct: Graham Cash, Richard Bailey and John Burke.
- BAM Nuttall: Stephen Fox, David Belsham, Robert Treadgold and Geoff Renshaw.
- BAM companies in the UK have a combined annual turnover of approximately £1.75bn.
Rogers said BAM will continue to become more influential. “We aim to continue our sound performance although market conditions will remain challenging in all construction sectors. We intend to do this by developing the BAM brand and growing our market share in both our existing and emerging market sectors,” he said.
“This will involve continuing to use the combined strengths and expertise of the BAM companies in the UK and across Europe. By making the most of the synergies between group companies we can offer added value.”
“We aim to continue our sound performance although market conditions will remain challenging in all construction sectors.”
