Finance director to quit construction company

The finance director of Kier Construction will stand down after the company releases its next set of financial results.

Kier, who have an operating base in Quedgeley, will report their results on June 30, after which finance director Bev Dew will stand down from his role on the board.

A search for a replacement is already underway at Kier - the company who built Gloucester's Transport Hub, redeveloped Shire Hall and are building the new secondary school in Leckhampton.

Philip Cox, Chairman of Kier, said: "Bev has been our Finance Director for over four years and I would like to thank him for his contribution over this time.

"Bev remains firmly committed to the Company and will be working with the Board to deliver the 2019 results."

Dew joined Keir in 2015 after spending nearly two years at Balfour Beatty. He had previously been financial director at Redrow Homes.

Kier appointed Andrew Davies as their chief executive in April and gave him a mandate to cut the debt levels at the company that turns over in excess of £4billion.
