Fletcher joined Morgan Sindall earlier this month after seven years at O’Rourke where he was operations director for UK infrastructure after a stint as managing director in Ireland.
He is now managing director of civil engineering at Morgan Sindall which will see him take overall responsibility for the company’s infrastructure, tunnelling and utility services businesses.
One industry source said: “He was highly regarded at O’Rourke so they will be disappointed to lose him.”
Morgan Sindall MD Graham Shennan said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Nick to our Executive Team. He will be a major asset in helping us drive the business forward and meet our ambitious performance targets.”
Fletcher said: “Morgan Sindall has a powerful market position across its three civil engineering businesses and I’m looking forward to leading a team that has proven itself time and again in successfully delivering large scale and complex infrastructure projects.”
