Algeco UK appoints new managing director
Modular and offsite building solutions brand Algeco has appointed Keith Dorling as UK managing director.
The announcement comes as increased demand and recent acquisitions open up new opportunities for the UK business and its customers.
Earlier this week, Galliford Try appointed the business as a strategic partner for the supply of temporary modular buildings for hire.
Keith takes overall responsibility for Algeco in the UK, a role that encompasses modular hire solutions and permanent offsite buildings.
Algeco continues to grow its presence in the UK with the recent acquisition of Mobile Mini. This follows on from Carter Accommodation Ltd and Procomm Site Services Ltd being added to the Algeco portfolio in early 2021/2.
Keith joins Algeco with extensive senior leadership experience across construction, infrastructure and distribution; including successfully leading complex acquisitions and integrations across multiple sectors.
He said: “I am delighted to have joined Algeco, an organisation that has solid foundations built on excellence, innovation and collaboration. The strong team of people and competitive positioning of the business means that I am confident we can continue to achieve great things on behalf of our customers.
“We have a major role to play in delivering the group’s Sustainable Strategy through our commitment to innovation and collaborative relationships. I look forward to working with all our stakeholders to make a lasting positive impact on the built environment.”
Mark Higson, group chief executive officer of Modulaire Group, said: “I am delighted Keith is joining us to lead the next phase of our growth in the UK. His focus on operational and commercial excellence along with his people-first approach, means that he is well-placed to lead the Algeco UK business and help to deliver our medium-term plan.”
