His replacement will be Tony Lenehan who joins from Bovis Lend Lease, where he was responsible for the company’s construction business operations in the north of England.
He was previously with Carillion where he held the positions of Managing Director for the Building Division and latterly the Integrated Property Solutions Business.
Jim Martin, Chairman said: “Tony has significant experience in the construction sector and is very well placed to take the business forward through the next phase of its development.
“I would like to thank Ivan, who has played an important role in the turnaround of fortunes for Styles & Wood, in particular leading the significant refinancing of the business in 2009 and putting it on the path to return to profitability in 2010. I wish him every success in the future.”
Tony Lenehan said: “I look forward to joining Styles & Wood. The Company has a strong brand, a proud heritage, and is well positioned in its markets. I am privileged to lead the business through the next phase of its development as CEO.”
Ivan McKeever said: “Following eight enjoyable years and having delivered a turnaround at Styles & Wood, I have decided to step down as CEO at the end of the year to pursue personal business interests.
“I leave the Group in good shape to prosper from this point and wish my successor and indeed all the team at Styles & Wood well.”
