Former Laing O’Rourke chief operating officer Tony Douglas has been appointed to the board of demolition contractor Keltbray.
Mr Douglas, who was widely tipped to replace Ray O’Rourke as chief executive of Laing O’Rourke until his departure in November, has taken on a non-executive director’s role at Keltbray.
The demolition contractor has hired Mr Douglas for his experience in handling infrastructure projects.
Mr Douglas ran Laing O’Rourke’s European, Asian and Middle Eastern divisions.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining the board of Keltbray. It is an innovative business leading its sector, and I look forward to working with the team towards its continued growth and success.”
Keltbray chief executive Brendan Kerr said: “Douglas’ extensive experience of significant UK infrastructure projects and international business will greatly contribute to our plans.”
