Gus Wright joins Kier in January 2023 in what is a newly created role.

He will be responsible for the operational delivery of Kier’s commercial and residential projects across London.

David McKenzie, managing director of Kier Construction, London & Southern, said: “As part of our strategy, we have built up a strong portfolio in London and Gus will further enhance our operational leadership, capability and capacity to our London clients. I’m looking forward to welcoming Gus in January and working together to continue to drive operational excellence and growth.”
