Raine will be based at Shepherd’s London office and will be responsible for managing the commercial performance of each of the projects across the South Division which is forecasting a turnover of £110m in this financial year.
He recently ran one of Shepherd’s flagship projects – the £100m Pirbright Institute in Surrey.
Prior to joining Shepherd in 2010 Raine worked as area commercial manager across the North East and Yorkshire for Taylor Woodrow Construction.
Mark Tant, Shepherd Construction’s regional managing director said: “In the last 12 months we have raised our presence in London and we’re becoming known for our technical expertise and the amount of time and effort we put into understanding the client’s vision.
“With a number of high profile projects already under our belt and more in the pipeline Paul’s expertise will reinforce the senior management team as the London business moves forward.”
