Kier has poached Morgan Sindall’s supply chain director to join its board of directors, Construction News understands.
Mark Ramessa is understood to have left Morgan Sindall after two years with the company to join Kier as a commercial director for trades and subcontracts.
Mr Ramessa joined Morgan Sindall in January 2015 from Bam Construct where he was national supply chain manager between 2003-2014 and managing surveyor for developments in London from 1999 to 2003.
Previously he was senior commercial manager at Lendlease between 1989 and 1999, responsible for projects in London worth £25m and above.
Kier announced in March that its chairman Phil White will step down after the firm’s AGM in November this year.
He will be replaced by Philip Cox, the current chairman of electricity generator Drax.
In the same week, CN revealed Kier’s infrastructure managing director Jag Paddam had left the business after an internal review of management.
Kier executive director for infrastructure Sean Jeffrey is now heading up the infrastructure managing director role in addition to his existing responsibilities.
It is not known who is in line to replace Mr Ramessa at Morgan Sindall.
Morgan Sindall and Kier have been contacted for comment.
