BAM solidifies UK focus with new organisation structure
Royal BAM Group is to concentrate on dedicated growth businesses in the UK & Ireland and the Netherlands as part of an organisational restructure.
Replacing the existing business lines Construction and Property and Civil engineering, BAM said the new structure will is the next step in realising the strategic agenda for 2021-2023 (Building a sustainable tomorrow), which was presented in February 2021.
The manage for growth activities will be managed in two new divisions, one dedicated to the Netherlands and the other to the United Kingdom and Ireland. The activities in Germany and Belgium will be managed for value, which means a continued focus on operational improvements and potentially further divestments.
The current chief operating officer for construction and property, Joost Nelis, will become responsible for the activities in the Netherlands. John Wilkinson, currently COO for BAM’s civil engineering activities, will become responsible for the activities in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The manage for value activities will continue to report to CEO Ruud Joosten.
BAM will start reporting in line with this new organisational structure in 2022.
