Lendlease Appoints New Managing Director for Construction

Appointments, EMEA, APAC, Construction

Lendlease has announced Simon Gorski as its new managing director for Construction, following the promotion of Neil Martin to Chief Operating Officer for Europe.

 

Gorski began his career as a quantity surveyor before attending the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst ahead of a decade of service with the British Army. The former Army officer was instrumental in the delivery of major defence programmes, including the Regional Prime Contract for the South West, and Project SLAM - a contract to provide 23,000 of the Ministry of Defence's bedrooms for single personnel.

 

Since joining Lendlease almost 15 years ago, he has held several positions, serving most recently as Executive General Manager, UK Regions.

 

Commenting on the appointment, Gorski said:

"My focus will be to ensure Lendlease remains a leader in the construction sector and continues to provide an exceptional service to our customers. We already have some of the finest talent in the industry working at Lendlease, and I have absolutely no doubt that we will continue to deliver great schemes and win new business."

 

Dan Labbad, Lendlease Europe CEO, added:

"At Lendlease our construction business is synonymous with the delivery of high-quality projects on time and budget for both the public and private sectors. Nobody is better qualified to continue that record than Simon. He is an outstanding member of our team and thoroughly deserves his new role."

 

In April, the company announced Labbad will be leaving the company to succeed Dame Alison Nimmo who retires this year as Chief Executive of The Crown Estate which manages £14 billion of commercial property for the British Royal family.

 

Analysts had suggested Labbad's departure raised questions about succession planning at Lendlease, and the latest appointments are believed to be part of a drive to reassure investors.
