Jonathan Kerr is new operations director for civils, joining from Graham Group where he spent 18 years, starting out as a site engineer before rising up the ranks to become rail director.
He replaces Kevin Corley who left at the end of last year after 31 years at Farrans.
In the other key appointment, former managing director of Morrison Construction Jim Steele joins Farrans to take up the role of civils director for Scotland.
He aims to further strengthen Farrans’s position in Scotland building on recent success including the new A90/A96 Haudagain Junction in Aberdeen and the York Place to Newhaven phase of the Edinburgh Tram project.
Steele replaces Martin O’Neil who left Farrans late last year to join offsite specialist McAvoy Group as contracts director.
