Vinci appoints former Galliford Try man as new southern MD

Vinci has appointed Dave Smith, former Galliford Try south and interiors managing director, as its new MD for the UK Building Division in the South.

Vinci said Mr Smith was part of a key team responsible for growing the Galliford Try southern building division from a base of £158m in 2006 to £235m in 2011, delivering projects including new build construction and fit-out projects over a broad range of sectors in the London and South-east regions.

Vinci Construction UK MD Andrew Ridley-Barker said: “Dave Smith brings a wealth of relevant expertise to the role at VINCI Construction UK and will add value for clients through his extensive knowledge and experience of the construction sector in London and the South.  It’s an area where we already have a strong base for future growth.

Mr Smith said: “I am delighted to be joining Vinci Construction UK.  My previous experience will complement that of the teams in London and the south and further enhance the presence of the company in this strategically important market.”
