Morgan Sindall to appoint Costain infrastructure commercial director Steve Fullen

Morgan Sindall is set to announce the appointment of Costain infrastructure commercial director Steve Fullen to the firm.

Construction News understands Mr Fullen has been lined up to take on the infrastructure commercial director role at Morgan Sindall.

Martin Pitt, who worked as commercial director across the construction and infrastructure businesses, was one of three directors to leave the company last month following head of construction for London and the South-east Tony Dixon’s departure.

Morgan Sindall announced at the time that Mr Pitt’s former role would be divided into two new commercial director roles, covering the construction and design division, and the infrastructure business.

It said the business had “identified the need for increased senior commercial resource as it gears for growth”.

Commercial team leader for the North Sharon Chrippes was named commercial director of its construction and design division, having been with the company for 18 years.

It is understood Mr Fullen will join Morgan Sindall as commercial director for the infrastructure business, where, like Ms Chrippes, he is expected to report to construction and design managing director Pat Boyle.

Mr Fullen had been with Costain for more than two years and was previously with Kier for more than six years, according to his LinkedIn profile.

His successor at Costain will be Paul Johnson.

A Costain spokesman said: “Paul has over 30 years of experience with Costain and has been involved, in a commercial capacity, with some of the UK’s largest infrastructure programmes.”

He added: “We wish Steve well for the future.”

Morgan Sindall declined to comment.
