Roger Robinson will step down as lead of Laing O’Rourke’s Europe hub at the end of the month, Construction News has learned.
Mr Robinson will remain in the company as “a senior executive with responsibility for a wide range of important relationships and aspects of the business including Laing O’Rourke’s joint venture with Bouygues at Hinkley Point C”, according to a Laing O’Rourke spokesman.
Laing O’Rourke chief executive Anna Stewart will combine her duties as CEO with the role of managing director of the Europe Hub.
A spokesman could not confirm whether Laing O’Rourke will appoint a permanent successor to Mr Robinson.
Laing O’Rourke appointed the chief executive of the UAE firm Al Naboodah Construction Group as its new UK infrastructure managing director in October 2013.
Gary Wells was appointed from the largest privately owned UAE-based construction group, which has a turnover of around £500m and specialises in the delivery of major infrastructure projects.
Laing O’Rourke nuclear adviser Norman Haste retired in May 2013 after a career spent leading on projects including Sizewell B and the Second Severn Crossing.
Mr Robinson joined Laing O’Rourke in 2009 and became CEO of the Europe Hub in 2010 as well as a member of the group executive committee.
Prior to joining Laing O’Rourke, he was executive director for construction services and a main board member of Carillion.
Construction News revealed last week that Laing O’Rourke had acquired Yorkshire-based Glass Reinforced Concrete UK.
