Under the changes, existing vice-president Gregor Craig now takes on Chandler’s previous building responsibilities, with Thomas Faulkner overseeing Skanska’s civils operations.
Martin Neeson, who has been with the firm for 15 years, is promoted to executive vice president and joins the executive management team with overall responsibility for the company’s services operations.
Neeson brings huge experience to the executive management team, having been managing director for three of Skanska’s businesses.
For the last four years he has headed up Skanska’s mechanical and electrical operations, SRW Engineering Services, and previously led the company’s facilities management operations, as well as part of its utilities business.
SRW business director Russell Hallmark has been promoted to succeed Neeson as SRW managing director.
As part of ongoing plans to integrate Skanska’s development activities more closely with its construction operations, Helen Martin succeeds Andreas Lindelöf as managing director of Skanska’s development business.
She has previously held senior positions within Skanska’s Infrastructure Development business and as Skanska UK’s lead on risk management.
Lindelöf will be moving to another role within the Skanska group.
Both Hallmark and Martin will join Skanska UK’s senior management team.
Mike Putnam, President and CEO, said: “These changes demonstrate yet again Skanska’s strength in nurturing and developing talent, rotating our people to harness their broader business experience, as well as our strong culture of promoting from within.”
