Murphy hires Crossrail innovation guru

Murphy has hired a key player on the Crossrail project to its newly created role of head of innovation. 

Will Reddaway, previously innovation programme manager on the trans-London rail scheme, took up the position with London-based Murphy this week.

Murphy has been on a major recruitment drive in the last year, hiring executives from Balfour Beatty, Laing O’Rourke, Interserve and Durkan.

Mr Reddaway spent four years at Crossrail and was involved with the rail project’s Innovate18 and Infrastructure Industry Innovation Programme (I3P).

Prior to Crossrail, he spent six years in a variety of roles at security services firm G4S.

Mr Reddaway said: “I look forward to working with all the teams to bring Murphy’s innovation capability back to life.”

Murphy engineering director Alastair Smyth, who Mr Reddaway will report to, said: “I look forward to supporting Will as we seek to embed a culture of creativity and innovation to improve how we deliver our projects through new technologies and products, and by improving our systems and processes.”

In an interview with Construction News last year, Murphy boss Steve Hollingshead revealed the group was interested in pursuing PFI opportunities. 

Construction News this month looked in-depth at i3P.
