New Skanska chief committed to partnership


SKANSKA UK this week appointed civil engineer David Fison as its new chief executive, following the promotion of Keith Clarke to the main board of its Swedish parent.

Fison pledged to continue focusing Skanska's UK activities on partnership-based contracting. 'We're going to keep doing exactly what we are doing. We like contracting and are good at it, ' he said.

Fison was originally recruited to the contractor as an executive vice president, when it was part of Kvaerner, having previously worked as managing director of Balfour Beatty's rail division.

As Skanska UK chief executive, his responsibilities include developing the group's global mining business, as well as Cementation Skanska and its oil and gas business.

Clarke's promotion follows the successful integration of Skanska's UK operation into the group following its acquisition from Kvaerner 18 months ago.
