Bouygues UK, one of the country’s leading construction companies, has appointed Rob Bradley as its Chief Executive Officer, following the resignation of Lionel Christolomme, who is returning to France to pursue other opportunities after 28 years with the Bouygues Group.
Rob has extensive UK contracting experience, having held numerous senior roles in the construction industry over the last 30 years, including Managing Director positions at Willmott Dixon, CH Pearce Construction (now ISG) and Leadbitter, prior to its acquisition by Bouygues in 2012. Since 2012, Rob has worked for Bouygues in the South West, Wales and South East and been a member of the Bouygues UK Leadership Team. Rob graduated from Leeds University in 1981 with a degree in Civil Engineering.
Fabienne Viala, Chairman of Bouygues UK, said: “This is an exciting time for Bouygues UK, when our focus on sectors and projects that enable us to add value through our technical expertise, skills, experience and collaboration with our colleagues across the global Bouygues Group are bearing fruit. I’m very much looking forward to working with Rob as we continue to deliver our business plan, successfully bringing construction projects and developments to life across England and Wales and ensuring that Bouygues UK remains the partner of choice for our clients, our supply chain and our people.”
Rob Bradley said: “With some of the most interesting, high profile and technically complex projects underway across the UK, Bouygues UK is a dynamic business and I am thrilled to become its Chief Executive Officer. I look forward to working with Fabienne and the rest of the exceptional team here, continuing to promote innovation and collaboration across the business.”
