It’s a long journey from a site work placement from college in 1988 to being appointed Executive Director of BAM Construct UK
In the intervening years, Doug has held every operational role in our business, from trainee site manager, to Construction Director. He led our construction business in Scotland as regional director from 2013 before joining the Board of BAM Construct UK in August 2016.
On the Board, Doug is managing director of our construction business, overseeing our construction divisions in Scotland, the North East, the North West, Midlands, the West country, the South East, and London. He also leads on health and safety, technical services and the development of BAM Plant.
He is the third generation of his family to be involved in the construction industry. Keen on the outdoors, in 2014 he successfully completed the 43 mile Devil O’The Highlands Footrace for Macmillan Cancer Support.
