Company appoints new regional director and senior operational lead
A national fit-out and refurbishment specialist contractor with a reputation for refurbishing and remodelling complex buildings, has strengthened its regional leadership team in the Midlands and Yorkshire.
Willmott Dixon Interiors has appointed Phil Crowther to the role of regional director, with responsibility for all business activities in the Midlands and Yorkshire and appointed Stuart Kerr as operations director.
The appointments bolster the contractor’s regional capability and will support delivery of one of its strategic objectives to enhance the customer journey.
Phil Crowther’s appointment as regional director comes just two years after being appointed as director to lead Willmott Dixon Interiors’ new office at Two Snowhill in Birmingham.
Since then, the business has won a series of major fit-out and refurbishment projects for public and private sector customers in the Midlands and Yorkshire, including the refurbishment of 48,300 sq ft of office space at Wellington House in Leeds on behalf of West Yorkshire Combined Authority, the complex structural refurbishment of Wolverhampton’s historic Civic Halls and Birmingham’s largest office refurbishment scheme at 10 Brindleyplace.
Stuart Kerr joins Willmott Dixon Interiors from sister-company Willmott Dixon Construction, where he was responsible for the operational leadership of the firm’s Nottingham and Rotherham offices. He has more than 20 years’ experience in the construction sector spanning commercial and residential property and was a member of Willmott Dixon’s regional board in the Midlands.
Graham Shaw, managing director for Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “Our operation in the Midlands and Yorkshire has enjoyed controlled and sustainable growth in the last two years, thanks largely to the strong financial standing and support of our Group, and through a policy of hand picking the very best people to take our business forward. Phil has done an exceptional job in leading our regional teams and with the appointment of Stuart to work alongside him, we have every confidence that we have the right senior management team in place to support the delivery of successful customer projects.”
Phil Crowther, said: “I’m extremely proud to have been appointed regional director for Willmott Dixon Interiors in the Midlands and Yorkshire.
