Robertson Group has poached development director Scott Wilson from Morgan Sindall.
Mr Wilson’s role at Robertson will cover bidding, frameworks and marketing in Scotland and the North of England.
He spent more than a decade working in business development for Morgan Sindall’s construction and infrastructure arm, serving as director of this operation from March 2015.
Robertson CEO Derek Shewan said: “As today’s market continues to shift and change, Scott’s knowledge will enable us to identify and react to the different changes we’re seeing across Scotland and England, helping us identify which projects best fit with our expertise and business objectives.”
Robertson has grown rapidly over the past three years, with turnover hitting £758.3m for the year ending 31 March 2018, more than double the £295.6m the firm reported in 2015.
This has been driven by the Scottish-based contractor taking on more large projects and moving further into the English market.
In August last year the company signed a 30-year PPP deal with Lewes and Eastbourne councils to deliver projects for the local authorities.
Robertson Group spun off its housebuilding business earlier this year to help the contracting business focus on its core activities.
