BAM restructure unites UK building and civils under Wilkinson

Royal BAM Group has restructured its organisation into two divisions to focus more effectively on the UK & Ireland and the Netherlands.

The UK & Ireland division will unite BAM Construction and BAM Nuttall under the leadership of John Wilkinson, currently COO for BAM’s civil engineering activities.

BAM’s activities in Germany and Belgium will be “managed for value”, which it says means “a continued focus on operational improvements and potentially further divestments”.

In a statement, the company said: “With this new organisational structure, BAM will enhance its effectiveness and focus on growth, leveraging its top-three market positions in the Netherlands, the UK and Ireland. This change will also contribute to faster development of innovative solutions, supporting BAM’s clients to improve their sustainability and lower their carbon footprint.”

The new structure comes into operation at the start of 2022.

Current COO for construction and property, Joost Nelis, will become responsible for the activities in the Netherlands. From 1 January 2022, BAM’s Executive Committee will consist of executive board members Ruud Joosten and Frans den Houter (CFO), as well as Joost Nelis and John Wilkinson.
