Cyril Sweett’s management and reporting structure will now be be split into three regional centres: Asia Pacific, Europe and Middle East, Africa & India.
Former China regional boss Kim Berry becomes managing director for the Asia Pacific region.
Derek Pitcher, previously managing director with responsibility for Europe will also now be responsible for the MEAI region.
Henderson said: “Kim’s appointment demonstrates the group’s growing international focus as we continue to evolve into a globally diverse business.
“In addition to a proven track record in successfully managing an international, growing business, Kim brings over 30 years of experience from the Asian construction markets to the Board.
“With around 30% of the group’s revenue currently coming from the Asia Pacific region, it is clear the region will continue to be a key driver for the group and alongside the restructuring of the management structure will ensure that Cyril Sweett is fully aligned to take advantage of opportunities across the world.”
