The latest management hires follow Dirk Pittaway, who was a former LOR project manager in the north west, and joined Robertson as North West managing director at the turn of the year.
Now, Peter Grieve, former North West building operations manager at Laing O’Rourke, has joined Robertson NW as new operations director.
He joins just after another Laing O’Rourke newcomer, Beth Santangeli, took up the role as business development manager, after previously working on the Alder Hey in the Park and the Transforming Cancer Care major projects.
Pittaway said: “It is a real coup that we’ve been able to secure two highly impressive individuals to the business.
“Peter comes to Robertson North West with vast knowledge and a highly regarded reputation, especially across the region. I have no doubt that his appointment will drive us forward in 2018 and well beyond.”
He added: “In her previous role, Beth was instrumental in different aspects of project delivery from bid, pre-construction and delivery. The appointments show the ambition of the business, as we continue to grow across the region.”
The news comes after Robertson North West was chosen by Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council to take over the Vision Tameside redevelopment.
Work on the second £36m phase of the major project in Ashton-under-Lyne stopped halfway through when Carillion collapsed.
