Morgan Sindall commercial director resigns

Morgan Sindall’s group commercial director Paul Whitmore has resigned and will leave the firm on 31 December 2013.

Mr Whitmore was appointed as a director of the contractor in April 2000.

He had spent 27 years with John Laing plc, latterly as chief executive of Laing Construction.

Chairman Adrian Martin commented: “The board would like to thank Paul for his considerable contribution to the development of the group over the last 13 years and wishes him the very best for the future.”

The group has seen several senior changes in the last year that included the departure of chief executive Paul Smith, who has now joined Willmott Dixon and was replaced in the role by John Morgan, and finance director David Mulligan, who was replaced in January by Filtrona’s finance director Steve Crummett.

Last month it announced in its interim management statement for the third quarter, that its order book was at £3.3bn, up 6 per cent from the half-year results, but that group margin was being impacted primarily by margin contraction in the Construction & Infrastructure division.

In its construction business, head of London and aviation Peter Jacobs, 58, will take early retirement next year for personal reasons while its area director for London, Adrian Barnes will leave the firm this month.

Morgan Sindall was one of eight contractors to be named on a shortlist for the DIO’s £250m Scotland Capital Work Framework this morning.
