Under two internal promotions, Ben Hall becomes new area director for Yorkshire, while Alex Isted assumes the same responsibility for the firm’s new North East operation – which will also incorporate Cumbria – with a new office in the region set to be announced.
Isted has been with Morgan Sindall Construction since 2009 and moves to his new position from his previous role of Integrated Strategic Business director, where he oversaw investment, frameworks, digital construction and social value and environmental initiatives.
In his new position, he will ensure the firm’s North East operation is able to replicate the Yorkshire team’s success in recent years of delivering landmark projects across the public and private sectors.
It is anticipated the office will create over 25 jobs – both office and site based – to support the North East’s team growing pipeline of projects.
He said: “Our new office will open at what is set to be a very difficult time for the economy and through close collaboration with local authorities, framework partners, developers and other stakeholders we are determined that our work will help address the issues that matter to the areas throughout the North East in which we will operate.”
Hall joined Morgan Sindall Construction as a quantity surveyor after graduating from Nottingham Trent University in 2009, and has risen up the ranks to oversee operations across Yorkshire.
He takes up his new role having most recently been commercial director for the Yorkshire and North East region.
Both Alex and Ben will report to Managing Director for Yorkshire and the North East, Andy Hall.
