Balfour Beatty shakes up US leadership

Balfour Beatty has announced new chief executives for its US building and civils arms.

Leon Blondin, former chief operating officer of its mid-Atlantic buildings operations, has been named CEO of US Buildings.

The contractor said Mr Blondin has brought in more than $10bn of new work for Balfour Beatty since joining in 2001.

John Rempe will assume the role of president and CEO of the firm’s US civils operations.

Mr Rempe has been with Balfour Beatty for 24 years and had been chief operating officer for US civils.

Both CEOs will report to group chief executive Leo Quinn.

Eric Stenman will become president of US buildings and Mike Phillips assumes the role of president for Mid-Atlantic buildings operations.

Pleas Mitchell becomes president of Balfour Beatty’s Texas buildings operations while Leslee Mallinson has been named vice-president of communications for Balfour Beatty in the US.

The contractor announced this week it has been picked by clients Westdale and KDC to build a 16-storey office in Dallas called ‘The Epic’.

Balfour Beatty announced last month it would benefit by up to £20m from President Trump’s tax reforms in the US.
