Kier shakes up infrastructure team as MD departs

Kier’s infrastructure managing director has left the business after an internal review of management, Construction News has learned.

Jag Paddam (pictured), who joined Kier from Morgan Sindall more than two years ago, has departed the business.

Kier executive director for infrastructure Sean Jeffrey will take on the infrastructure managing director role in addition to his existing responsibilities.

Mr Jeffrey said Kier had reviewed its management structure “in order to respond to the evolving nature of the infrastructure market”.

The contractor will seek to improve co-ordination across its wider infrastructure and utilities business.

Kier has added Mouchel and May Gurney through acquisitions in the last four years, expanding its presence in sectors including utilities and highways maintenance.

Recent wins include a £140m contract to carry out for maintenance in Highways England’s Area 13, and a deal with Severn Trent Water to build its £100m Birmingham Water Resilience project.

Kier has also taken over Highways England’s Area 6 and 8 maintenance contracts from Amey.

Mr Jeffrey added: “Jag has added a great deal of value to the business over the last two years and I’d like to thank him for his contribution to Kier.”

Kier is due to announce its half-year results on Thursday.
