Former Keller chief executive Justin Atkinson is joining the board of Kier Group in October as an independent non-executive director.
Justin Atkinson was chief executive of ground engineering specialist Keller Group from April 2004 until his early retirement in May 2015. An accountant by profession, he was previously Keller’s finance director.
Kier chairman Phil White said: "In over a decade as chief executive of Keller, Justin managed the delivery of significant growth in the business. In addition, his in-depth knowledge of the construction sector, both in the UK and internationally, will complement the skills and experience of our other non-executive directors."
