Galliford Try hires rail boss

Galliford Try has appointed Sean Blackmore as its new rail director.

Mr Blackmore joins the company from Murphy where he was major projects director leading schemes such as the HS2 enabling works.

He has worked in the infrastructure industry for 30 years including as regional operations director managing programmes such as Network Rail’s civils and property frameworks.

Galliford Try rail & aviation managing director Chris Scoffield said: “We recognise the importance that rail plays in an integrated transport network and Sean will lead the next phase of our growth in the rail sector.”

Mr Blackmore’s appointment comes weeks after Galliford hired Nick Culshaw as its new operations director

Mr Culshaw will work with the contractor’s senior highways team to co-ordinate its work with Highways England.

He previously held a similar role with VolkerStevin and will succeed Bryan Kennedy, who has chosen to leave the company at the end of January.

Highways England revealed the winners of its £8.7bn framework last week, with 13 contractors picking up 18 separate packages.
