New Commercial Director for Durkan

Durkan has appointed Shane Rooney as Commercial Director. This appointment is part of a wider succession planning programme which saw Brian Williams promoted to the role of Deputy Managing Director following the retirement of Robert Clark as the Durkan Group’s CEO in July.

Shane brings a strong commercial approach and over 27 years construction experience to the business having spent most of his career, with John Sisk & Son before periods at Hollybrook Ltd and most recently Bouygues UK Ltd, where he operated as Director of Pre-Construction.

Shane commented, “Durkan has a real can do attitude and I am looking forward to being part of this team. In my new role I will take responsibility for the surveying and procurement parts of the business and hope to further build on Durkan’s success in providing affordable, quality homes across London and the South East.”

Durkan’s Managing Director, Jim Briggs stated, “We are delighted to welcome Shane to Durkan. He will be a complementary addition to the team with his wealth of experience and strong focus on achieving results.”
