Thomas Faulkner promoted while Peter Jones to lead Skanska bids for HS2

Thomas Faulkner has been promoted to executive vice-president at Skanska following the departure of stalwart Bill Hocking to Galliford Try.

The latest moves follow the expansion of the executive management team in February 2015.

Mr Faulkner joins the team with responsibility for the company’s utilities, cementation and facilities services operating units.

Peter Jones moves from managing director for utilities to leading Skanska’s work for High Speed 2.

James Richardson has been promoted to managing director for civil engineering from his current role as operations director.

Andrew English takes on the role of managing director for utilities, promoted from his current position of commercial director of civil engineering.

Adrian Cooke becomes managing director for infrastructure services, moving up from his current role as senior operations director.

Mr Richardson, Mr English and Mr Cooke will all join Skanska’s senior management team.

Skanska UK president and CEO Mike Putnam said the changes demonstrated Skanska’s commitment to “nurturing talent and promoting from within, in line with our determination to be a leader in people development”.

He added: “Having the leaders in place to manage our business over the next few years, as we grow to deliver the work we have won and will win, is essential.”

More than 750 new employees joined Skanska UK last year and the company expects to recruit a further 1,000 people over the next 18 months.

The management changes take effect from 1 July 2015.
