After 42 years with the Group and 11 years as Managing Director of Walter Lilly I have decided to retire from the business at the end of December 2013. I shall be standing down as Managing Director at the end of this financial year, the 30th September 2013.
I am delighted to announce that Andrew Crispin with 29 years’ service with Walter Lilly has agreed to take up the position of Managing Director with effect from the 1st October 2013 which will ensure a smooth transition. It is always pleasing when succession is internal and I am sure you will all join me in wishing Andrew every success in his new position.
The Walter Lilly Board has discussed the future senior structure with Andrew and the following changes have been agreed. Andrew Postlethwaite has agreed to return to the position of Construction Director. Shaun Frampton as Pre Construction Manager will lead the Pre Construction Department. Both these changes will take effect from the 1st September 2013. Graham Corless has agreed to take responsibility for Surveying in addition to his current responsibilities.
If there are any questions regarding the transition of responsibilities noted above then please speak with myself or Andrew Crispin.
Best wishes and kind regards,
