Balfour Beatty has made its second heavyweight non-executive appointment in two months with the addition of Stephen Billingham to the board.
Mr Billingham is currently chairman of Anglian Water Group and executive chairman of Punch Taverns, but will stand down from the latter role later this month.
He is also non-executive director at Urenco and previously held finance director roles at British Energy Group and WS Atkins.
Mr Billingham’s appointment as a non-executive director at Balfour Beatty follows that of former Costain chief executive Stuart Doughty, who joined in April.
Speaking of the latest appointment, Balfour Beatty chairman Philip Aiken said: “I am delighted that Stephen has agreed to join the Balfour Beatty board.
“He brings immense experience of different industries, including construction and support services, both from the supplier and the client side, as well as having a strong background in finance in several complex organisations.
“Stephen Billingham will be the fifth new director to join in 2015, as we make good progress to strengthen both Balfour Beatty’s board and executive management.”
Mr Aiken himself joined Balfour Beatty in March, when he replaced Steve Marshall as chairman.
The slew of appointments comes as group chief executive Leo Quinn has pledged to reshape the business after a series of profit warnings hit the group over the last two-and-a-half years.
