Bill Thicknes joins J Murphy as London and South operations director

J Murphy has appointed Bill Thicknes as its new operations director for London & South.

Mr Thicknes will be responsible for Murphy’s water and wastewater, highways and streetworks, and minor works businesses.

He joins Murphy from Skanska where he led projects with clients that included National Grid and Network Rail.

The appointment follows that of Peter Walsh as operations director of London & South for rail, tunnelling and piling.

Managing director for London & South Darren Ramsay said: “Bill joins us at a very exciting time of dynamic change and growth, not only for the company as a whole but for the water and wastewater sector in particular.

“Bill brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise in major projects and defining leadership skills that will help to grow our service within these sectors, and drive profitable and sustainable growth.”

Mr Thicknes said: “My immediate focus will be to further develop our client relationships, working on new and innovative solutions to their needs.

“I will look to build long-term relationships with our partners and supply chain, nurturing the existing strong skills base within the company, and drive forward Murphy’s industry-leading safety performance.”

Last month, Murphy announced the appointment of Bill Merry as its new strategy and business development director.
