Curtis Moore appoints new managing director
Roofing and cladding contractor Curtis Moore has appointed a new managing director as part of a series of changes to its Board of directors.
Managing director Andrew Devlin has taken on the role of CEO and will be succeeded by previous commercial director Euan Walker.
Andrew Devlin had worked as managing director since the business launched in 2000, evolving from humble beginnings to the three-office operation it is today, employing 34 headquarter staff and over 100 on-site operatives.
Curtis Moore, which is celebrating its 18th year in business this year, has built up a portfolio including the award-winning Haymarket Railway Station in Edinburgh with Morgan Sindall, GlaxoSmithKline in Irvine and its most recent project, the redevelopment of Glasgow Queen Street Station as well as the transport Interchanges in Wythenshawe and Bolton.
Over the last 12 months, Euan and Andrew have been working closely together, preparing Euan for a smooth transition in to the role of managing director. The change in structure will free up some of Andrew’s time to focus on expanding the company into new markets in Europe and beyond, Andrew will remain very much involved in the business activities going forward into the future.
Andrew Devlin stated: “Five years ago through internal promotion we formed a properly structured board and that board has been running the business since then. Last year my daughter Ashleigh was appointed to the board as business development director. In order to grow the business and expand, we took the decision for myself to step down as managing director and take up the role of CEO. The obvious candidate for the job of managing director was Euan Walker, who was previously commercial director. To take it to the next chapter we felt that it was prudent for me to take myself out with the day to day running of the business and my prime focus going forward will be to look at new markets and we have an ambition to expand our operations to Europe and beyond.”
Regarding Euan Walker’s promotion to managing director, Andrew added: “Euan joined the business as a Chartered Quantity Surveyor eight years ago and progressed to commercial manager then becoming commercial director. He is another example of someone joining the business and progressing through the ranks. His latest promotion is his just rewards for his dedication and loyalty to the business.”
Speaking of his promotion, Euan said: “Andrew and I have worked together to reach a position where I will soon fully take over the role of managing director of the cladding business. These are exciting times, not just for myself but for Curtis Moore and the board and we look forward to the challenges and opportunities that will present themselves in the coming years.”
