Kier hires Laing O’Rourke veteran for London office push

He joins in the newly-created role of regional director for London in January responsible for the operational delivery of Kier’s commercial and residential projects across London.

Wright has over 30 years’ experience in construction holding senior roles at Ardmore Group, Mace and most recently nearly seven years at Laing O’Rourke, where recent successes include the delivery of the Brunel Building.

His appointment comes amid a period of growth for Kier in the London blue-chip commercial and residential market, securing over £200m of new contracts which are either on site or in pre-construction.

David McKenzie, managing director of Kier Construction, London & Southern, said: “As part of our strategy, we have built up a strong portfolio in London and Gus will further enhance our operational leadership, capability and capacity to our London clients.
