North Midland Construction plc has appointed Ian Rothery as its first Executive Director for Rail as it prepares for further growth in the rail sector.
Ian Rothery has 39 years experience in the rail and civil engineering industry. During his career he has covered major design and build rail projects, from station refurbishment to multi- disciplinary packages including track renewal and signalling.
NMC, headquartered in Nottinghamshire, already has extensive experience delivering contracts within the rail sector, in particular working with Network Rail on a range of projects including; footbridge refurbishment, repair and replacement at a number of stations across the UK and the building of a new maintenance and training facility in Walsall.
Under Ian’s leadership the new division will be built up using NMC’s extensive pool of resources to deliver larger scale infrastructure rail projects across the UK.
Says Ian, ‘NMC has clearly built up extensive experience in the rail sector and I’m delighted to be heading up this new approach that will build on this. We have a clear strategy for the next three years and are building on existing skills and resources to efficiently and effectively meet the requirements of the rail sector on a wide range of projects.’
Ian was previously construction director at C Spencer Ltd, which he joined in 2008. He has worked for Jackson Civil Engineering and was construction director at Norwest Holst.
