Morgan Sindall infra boss joins Lagan Construction Group

Morgan Sindall’s managing director for infrastructure Nick Fletcher is to join Lagan Construction Group as its chief operating officer.

Last week Construction News reported that Mr Fletcher would be leaving Morgan Sindall after more than three years in charge of its infrastructure division.

He will be replaced with immediate effect by the company’s energy and water managing director Simon Smith as part of a three-month handover period.

Lagan Construction Group has confirmed that he will be joining up with the Belfast-based firm in December this year.

Mr Fletcher was previously employed by Lagan Construction Group as the managing director for its Charles Brand subsidiary.

Before joining Morgan Sindall he spent seven years at Laing O’Rourke, serving as the company’s managing director for Ireland and operations director for the company’s infrastructure arm.

He is the second high-profile departure from Morgan Sindall in the past month after Construction News revealed that its supply chain director Mark Ramessa had left the firm to become Kier’s commercial director for trades and subcontracts.

Lagan Construction Group chief executive Kevin Anthony Lagan said: “Nick brings with him incredibly strong knowledge and experience, which will help him play a key leadership role in Lagan Construction Group’s senior executive team and on the group board.

“It is an additional benefit that, through his previous experience, Nick understands our business and shares our culture and values.”
