Interserve Construction's London director exits

Exclusive: Interserve Construction’s strategic projects managing director Jeremy James has left the business, CN has learned.

Mr James also served as the contractor’s head of London construction operations and had a place on the board of the Interserve Construction.

He joined Interserve in 2016 as part of a raft of management and procedural changes introduced to the construction business by outgoing CEO Adrian Ringrose shortly before his departure in early 2017.

Mr James moved to the contractor from rival Balfour Beatty where he was head of London operations.

Prior to that role, Mr James worked at Lendlease for eight years both in the UK and the firm’s Australian business.

Interserve Construction managing director Gordon Kew told CN last month that the construction arm would shrink, but that this would not represent a “massive contraction by any means”.

His words followed chief executive Debbie White’s statement in the firm’s 2017 results that the construction sectors in which Interserve operates “are not the strongest markets”

Last week, the contractor announced it had sold its Edinburgh Haymarket development site for £49.1m to M&G Real Estate

Commenting on Mr James’ departure, Mr Kew said: ”I’m very grateful for Jeremy’s leadership, commitment and relentless energy in all that he achieved at his time with us at Interserve and wish him well for the future.”
