Spie UK has hired former Rydon Group finance director Tony Wilkinson as its new chief financial officer.
Mr Wilkinson joins Spie after five months spent as interim finance director at construction materials supplier SIG.
He replaces outgoing CFO Daniel Quint, who has been in the role for nearly three years.
Prior to his time at SIG, Mr Wilkinson spent four years as group finance director at Rydon.
He has also previously held roles as Skanska’s interim finance director, Mouchel’s group finance consultant and finance director of Alfred McAlpine Investments.
Spie suffered a pre-tax loss of £19.8m in its accounts for the year up to 31 December 2016, down from a loss of £649,000 for the previous 12 months.
Managing director for industrial services Steven Nanda and distribution and transmission director Mike Snee left the business in October last year ahead of the results.
In May 2017 Spie UK chief executive James Thoden van Velzen was replaced by Robert Goodhew after five years at the firm.
Last month Keltbray completed the deal to buy Spie’s transmission arm as part of a drive to expand its overhead line capabilities.
The agreement saw Keltbray take on more than 300 Spie staff and appoint Mr Snee as managing director for this part of the business.
