Construction and property consultancy Rider Levett Bucknall has rejigged its UK board with the reintroduction of a chief executive role.

Andrew Reynolds take up chief executive role in ambitious go-for-growth plan

Andrew Reynolds switches from managing partner to chief executive while Dean Sheehy becomes new operations director.

The changes are designed to help RLB manage a new ambitious long-term growth plan.

Over the next ten years, RLB UK’s targets include nearly doubling turnover from around £80m this year to £150m while remaining an independent employee-owned organisation.

RLB UK main board appointments


New RLB UK board (l-r) Dean Sheehy, Operations Director, Ann Bentley, Non-Executive Director, Andrew Reynolds, Chief Executive; (sitting) Mark Weaver, Commercial and Technical Director and Stuart Stables, Finance Director.

Reynolds said: “RLB UK today is a completely different size and scale to where we were five years ago, and we continue to evolve to remain future fit.

“We have always prided ourselves on being an independent, employee-owned business– offering independent advice to our clients and at the same time offering an opportunity for every member of our staff to become an owner in our company.

“We believe it is this autonomous structure that has underpinned our success combined with a passion to deliver the best outcomes for our clients and a commitment to driving best practice in everything we do.”

Dean Sheehy, operations director, added: “Over the last five years we have grown our turnover from £42m to £80m, increased our profit fivefold and doubled our team in the UK to 675.

“Our industry is ever-evolving and we have made changes to our structure to ensure we will make the most of the opportunities the next decade brings, setting ourselves ambitious targets to secure the longevity of our business.”
