Paul Sheffield, former chief executive of Kier and managing director of Laing O’Rourke, is set to join the supervisory board of Royal BAM Group.
An extraordinary general meeting of BAM’s supervisory board on 24th August 2017 will nominate Mr Sheffield to serve on the board for a four-year term.
The vacancy has arisen because of the retirement of chairman Peter Elverding for health reasons.
Harrie Noy has taken over as chairman.
Paul Sheffield spent 31 years with Kier, including four as chief executive. He left in 2014 and joined Laing O’Rourke as a managing director.
His experience of the UK construction industry appeals to BAM as the UK is the Dutch company’s second largest market.
Since 2015, Mr Sheffield has also been a non-executive director of Southern Water Services.
