Galliford Try, one of the UK’s leading construction groups, announces that it has made two key new appointments to its Infrastructure and Building businesses.

David Lowery joins the company as Operations Director, with responsibility for the relationship with Highways England, direct from his role as Executive Director for the Eiffage Kier Ferrovial BAM Joint Venture working on HS2.

David, whose career in civil engineering began over 20 years ago, has both extensive experience of the Highways sector and also brings significant knowledge and experience beyond highways, including his strong advocacy for our inclusion agenda.

Meanwhile, Simon Courtney has been appointed as Managing Director for Galliford Try Building West Midlands and South West, promoted internally from his previous role as Area Director. Simon originally joined the business straight from university in 1999 and has worked his way up the ranks since then, excluding a short stint with the Miller Group from 2007 to 2009.

Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, commented: “These appointments are a sign of the strength of Gallford Try - attracting high calibre individuals like David from outside the business and having the depth of talent within our business to promote Simon to a key regional leadership position.

“We are delighted to have been able to make both appointments and I look forward to working with both of them as they develop their careers with Galliford Try in the future.”
