Andrew Wollstenholme: The appointment formalizes the formerly looser relationship of the former Crossrail boss with the company. Andrew Wolstenholme has been working with Laing O’Rourke in a consulting capacity, helping with the technical complexities of major projects, since leaving arms manufacturer BAE Systems two years ago. He took over as Technical Director in May, replacing Damien Bowie, who has held the position since September 2019. The position includes responsibility for delivering technical excellence to clients, enhancing the company’s digital capacity and health and safety. He will report to Group CEO Ray O’Rourke and be a member of the Company’s Group Executive Committee (GEC). Andrew Wolstenholme has emerged in the construction industry as the Construction Manager for the Heathrow Express Rail Link and Program Manager at Terminal 5 (built by Ling O’Rourke), then as Director of Capital Projects at BAA which operates a £ 10 billion development program across 10 airports. He was the CEO of Crossrail from 2011 to 2018 before joining BAE Systems as General Manager, but he only stayed there for a year. He has also worked as a Non-Executive Director at HS2. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a former Chairman of the Construction Leadership Council and was the Vice President of the Institute of Civil Engineers. Ray O’Rourke said, “I am delighted that Andrew has agreed to join us. He has known our business as a client and advisor. His knowledge of our sector will ensure that our engineering and innovation are seamlessly combined with operational discipline and client communication.” He understands the strength of our expertise in technical excellence and disruptive thinking, and believes in our ambitious plans to enable high performance. Sustainable through our workforce directly and providing certainty to clients. ”Do you have a story? Email [email protected]
