Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering (BBGE) has announced the appointment of Tony Dixon as its managing director as part of a management restructure.
Dixon joins BBGE from Birse Civils where he was regional managing director and also project director on the recently completed £380M A46 upgrade.
In the new structure, Dixon will work alongside Arwel Williams who takes on the role of director of specialist business, Marc Evans in the role of technical services director and finance director Ken White. Other new appointements to the BBGE management team are director of operations Richard Munday and commercial director Alan Wilkinson.
Dixon’s first change to BBGE is to divide it into five businesses – large diameter piling, continuous flight auger piling, driven piling, ground improvement and mini piling. BBGE said that the new structure is “designed to drive improvements to safety and customer care while delivering exceptional operational performance”.
“In challenging market conditions, customers demand highly competitive prices without any drop in service levels,” explained Dixon. “We now have excellent people in a structure that allows them to consistently deliver effective results.”
