Former Balfour Beatty UK construction chief executive Mike Peasland has joined the board of Sisk Group’s construction business, Sicon.
He will join Sicon as a non-executive director.
He retired from the contractor in December 2013 following several reshuffles of senior management at Balfour Beatty, which saw Andrew McNaughton step in as UK chief executive, before his resignation last month.
Sicon has also appointed Ken Reid as a non-executive director.
Mr Reid has previously worked at Kier and Bilfinger Berger. He left Bilfinger Berger in 2010 after 20 years.
In 2000, he was appointed managing director of Bilfinger’s worldwide Concessions and PPP business.
He was appointed to serve on Bilfinger’s main executive board in 2007, where he had direct responsibility for the group’s global activities in civil engineering, power services and in concessions & project investments.
Sicon chairman Liam Nagle said: “We are very fortunate to have attracted both Mike and Ken to the board. Between them they have more than 70 years’ experience in business and most of that at a senior level.”
