Balfour Beatty has now named Peter Mumford as UK Managing Director of Construction & Civils. Mumford will be replacing Tom Edgcumbe who left Balfour’s earlier this year to join Aggregate Industries.
Mumford joins Balfour Beatty leaving his post at National Highways where he was the Executive Director of Major Projects & Capital Portfolio Management. His post with National Highways saw him leading the way in delivering the UK’s £27 billion Road Investment Strategy.
Mark Bullock, Chief Executive Officer of Balfour Beatty’s UK Construction Services business, said: “Our UK Construction Services business has a long-standing history in the successful delivery of civil engineering projects across the UK, having most recently completed the East Leeds Orbital Route – one of the largest road projects in Leeds for almost 50 years.
“I am confident that Peter’s extensive experience in overseeing major infrastructure schemes and deep domain knowledge will further strengthen our offering as we work to capitalise on the strong and growing infrastructure market in the UK.”
Mumford said: “With a wealth of civil engineering projects on the horizon, it is a particularly exciting time to be joining Balfour Beatty.
“I am looking forward to working with our long-standing clients alongside our own team of experts to safely and successfully deliver projects across England and Wales; both those of national significance and at the heart of local communities.”
