Interserve UK construction MD leaves in company restructure

Interserve is to merge its UK and International Construction divisions in a new “simplified structure” which will result in the exit of UK Construction boss Gordon Kew.

Part of the firm’s ongoing cost-cutting and efficiency drive, the move will also see Interserve’s international facilities management business join its UK support services division.

The changes take effect from September 3.

The new Construction division will be led by George Franks, who currently runs Interserve’s Construction International division.

Gordon Kew, who has been managing director of UK Construction for the past two years, will be leaving the business at the end of September.

Chief executive officer, Debbie White, said: “These changes support our vision for a simpler, more efficient and more effective Interserve, where people are empowered to make things happen within a clear and strong leadership structure. Bringing our UK and International construction and support services businesses together will help us to reduce complexity, support the transfer of people and skills and develop a clear and consistent value propositions for customers wherever they are in the world.”
