Jackson Civil Engineering Names New MD

Construction News Image
Jackson Civil Engineering has named Contracts Director, Brian Crofton as its new Managing Director.

He is taking over from current MD Richard Neall, who is stepping down to focus on Jackson's parent company, One Group Construction.

Richard said: "The time has come for me to step back and focus fully on all of our companies. Whilst it's tough for me to do, this is great news for Jackson as it needs the drive of a fully focused, young management team who aren't too set in their ways. After 17 years in post, I'm definitely an 'Old Dog' so I need to get out of the way a little.

"Unlike some of their competitors, Jackson is in a very strong position financially, and we've delivered some fantastic results over the past few years. It therefore feels like the right time to hand over the reins whilst the business is performing well.

"Brian has been with the company since 2001 and has exceptional operational and commercial experience. He will bring that focus to the position as well as a fresh set of eyes on how we do things and where we're heading. Most importantly, he is also a really good guy with great family support and I wouldn't be trusting him with my baby if that wasn't the case."
