Morgan Sindall appoints education chief

Morgan Sindall has appointed council regeneration specialist Jayne Hettle as director of education.

The contractor hopes the move will enhance its ability to provide strategic advice to local authorities, trusts and dioceses responsible for education facilities in the UK.

Ms Hettle will also be tasked with bringing Morgan Sindall’s sister firms into education projects. The group includes project funding arm Morgan Sindall Investments, refurbishment specialists Overbury, affordable housing firm Lovell, and urban regeneration arm Muse Developments.

Ms Hettle was most recently assistant director of regeneration at Liverpool City Council, where she was responsible for the city’s Building Schools for the Future project among other schemes.

She was previously head of regeneration at Wolverhampton City Council and held a senior position at Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council.

Ms Hettle said: “As a construction company with a long track record of working with schools, Morgan Sindall brings cost transparency to the process and genuine insight into creating buildings that support the ultimate goal of improving academic attainment.

“Whether using a modular or completely bespoke design, the company has a clear understanding that schools are unlike any other building and our role is to provide learning environments that do really inspire young people, teachers and the communities they support.”

Morgan Sindall managing director Graham Shennan said: “We’re delighted to welcome Jayne to the team. This appointment underlines our commitment to further enhancing our reputation as the market leader for education buildings in the UK.”
