Robertson Construction has appointed a new managing director for the North-west of England as it plans to triple growth.
Carl Wilde has joined the group after 18 years at Seddon Construction, where he was most recently a regional director.
Mr Wilde will run Robertson Construction England’s North-west division from its Oldham office.
Before his role at Seddon, the MD spent 15 years with MJ Gleeson, whom he had joined aged 16 as an apprentice joiner.
He plans to triple the regional business’s annual turnover from £18m to £55m in the next five years.
Mr Wilde said: “My appointment is one of a few recent senior hires in the North of England, which shows just how serious the business is about sustainable growth.
“We’re already winning work that would have in the past gone to someone else. But it’s coming to us because we have the right people in place with the correct expertise.”

“We’ve known each other for a long time so I know what he’s capable of. He’s a wonderful addition to the Robertson family.”
