Montel Civil Engineering Ltd has announced the appointment of Simon Turbutt as its new managing director
Simon previously served as the company’s operations director.
Former managing director, Jon Kirkland is not taking on the newly created position of chief executive officer.
Montel delivers projects ranging in value from minor works to £10m and spans numerous sectors including commercial, industrial, local infrastructure, residential, defence and education.
Prepared for a challenging role
Simon Turbutt said: “We are going forward from a strong foundation the team has built over the last 10 years.
“These are uncertain and difficult times, but we are taking the opportunity to strengthen our business in a way that will promote growth and sustain profitability for years to come.
“There are areas we would like to explore, new directions that complement the current business and potential expansion from our existing client portfolio. I am thrilled to be taking on my new role and thank the owners of the business for offering me this fantastic opportunity.”
“My formative years within the Monk/Trafalgar House/Kvaerner group provided some amazing experiences and I was privileged to work and be trained by some of the best people within the industry – I owe them my career!
“Various management roles within Dean & Dyball and then G F Tomlinson & Sons Ltd, prepared me for more challenging roles and when Jon Kirkland asked me to join Montel in 2013 to work with him to evolve the business and move it forward, it was too good an opportunity to miss.
“The last seven years of Montel have been both exciting and very satisfying, we have a wealth of talent and enthusiasm within our organisation and I look forward to working with them in taking Montel through its next stage of evolution and beyond.”
