Galliford Try’s Highways business has made two new key appointments from industry rivals.

Alison Chippington is set to become the new Pre-Construction Director for the highways division with responsibility for all aspects of work-winning, tender strategies, pre-contract and bid management.

Chippington joins from Morgan Sindall where she was most recently Head of Bid Management and Proposals following a 31-year career at the firm.

Ondrej Humplik has taken the role of Partnership Director for the Group’s National Highways RDP Framework.

He joins from Balfour Beatty where he was Project Manager, most recently working on HS2 and prior to that the A14, Huntington – Cambridge scheme.

David Lowery, Managing Director of Galliford Try’s Highways business, said: “This is a really progressive and exciting time for our Highways business as we look to deliver our Sustainable Growth Strategy.

“We’ve secured a strong pipeline of work over the next few years and are in a very strong position to capitalise further as we strengthen our business with these excellent appointments.

“We strongly value our growing relationships with our key clients and customers across the breadth of the country and we have ambitious plans in the coming years to play a critical role in the infrastructure sector and position ourselves as a delivery focussed, innovative and sustainably driven business.

“It is no surprise that we have been able to attract these high calibre individuals to our business, and I am delighted to welcome Alison and Ondrej to the team. I look forward to working together with them as we look to develop, build and enhance the infrastructure of tomorrow.”
