Born and trained in New Zealand, Bryan, a chartered civil engineer, was most recently an operations director of Laing O’Rourke’s infrastructure business, where he played a pivotal role in delivering a number of major projects, including the second Severn crossing, Heathrow Terminal 2A, Manchester Metro and Manchester Terminal 2.

Derek Shewan, CEO of Robertson, said: “Bryan has an impressive roster of experience and brings valuable skills to our civil engineering business as it continues to grow - which will be invaluable in the development of the business.

“Bryan will provide strategic and focussed leadership to the business, enabling the Robertson Civil Engineering offering to progress on its journey to becoming recognised as a leading provider in the delivery of infrastructure projects throughout Scotland.”

Bryan’s appointment follows the latest high-profile contract win for the civil engineering business, as work continues on the Duntanlich Service Infrastructure project in Perthshire for MI SWACO.

Bryan said: “I’m very pleased to join a business that has family principles at its heart – principles that have no doubt led Robertson to the leading position it holds across the UK’s built environment sector.

“I’m looking forward to working within the internal framework of the business and developing a project delivery team that will be respected throughout the civil engineering environment in Scotland.”
