Wates appoints Shepherd Construction manager to boost commercial client relationships

Wates Construction has appointed Shepherd Construction’s Christian Bailey to lead its business development team and strengthen its Northern presence in the private sector.

Mr Bailey will be responsible for building relationships with commercial clients in Wates’ private sector portfolio across the region.

He has made the move from Shepherd Construction where he led the business development function for the group’s western region.

Mr Bailey has 12 years’ industry experience, working with Willmott Dixon and McLaren Group as business development manager and director respectively.

Wates Construction North-west business unit director Tony Shenton said the appointment formed part of the group’s “ambitious strategy” for growth in the North.

“He brings with him a wealth of experience unlocking business development opportunities and I look forward to seeing the fruits of his labour while we remain focused on driving efficiency, maintaining high standards and offering our clients true value for money.”

Mr Bailey added: “Wates Construction has a proven track record of delivering excellence for a range of clients and I am keen to help channel this throughout the commercial sector.

“I join the company at an exciting time as an increasing number of opportunities emerge and Wates’ forecast for growth is strong. I look forward to playing a part in that.”
