Kier Highways boss retires

Kier Highways boss Dave Wright has retired and stepped down from his position as executive director after four years at the company.

He is to be replaced by Kier Highways finance director Joe Incutti on a temporary basis.

Mr Wright had more than 30 years’ experience in the industry since becoming a quantity surveyor in 1980.

In more recent years, he was managing director at EM Highway Services for over a decade before it was acquired by Kier Highways in 2015.

A Kier spokeswoman said: “Following a very successful career in the highways industry, Dave Wright has made the decision to retire from full-time employment and will be leaving the business on 30 September.

“From 1 September, Joe Incutti, Kier Highways finance director, will become acting group managing director until a permanent successor is appointed.

“We wish Dave all the best in his retirement and thank him for his significant contribution to the group.”

In July, Highways England brought 120 Kier employees in-house as part of contractual changes that will mean the roads agency can take a “more controlling role in asset management”.

Kier ranked second in this year’s CN100 and reported large increases in profit of £120m in its most recent accounts, compared to last year.
