Lowery joined Galliford Try two months ago as operations director, responsible for Galliford Try’s relationship with Highways England, direct from his role as director for the Eiffage Kier Ferrovial BAM joint venture working on HS2.
He now steps up with immediate effect to head the highways business replacing Duncan Elliott who has decided to bring forward his departure from Galliford Try to pursue new opportunities.
Galliford Try said Elliott would remain with the business over the next few months to complete the transition.
Lowery said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to lead the Galliford Try Highways team.
“As a business we are in a great position for the future with excellent relationships with our key clients and I look forward to working with our people and our stakeholders to maintain our progress in the future.”
Bill Hocking, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: “Duncan has done a fantastic job and leaves the Highways business in a great position. I thank Duncan for his efforts during his time here.”
