Caddick strengthens BD leadership

The construction group has appointed Scott Clark from Skanska as business development director for Yorkshire and North East, with predecessor Helen Drennan stepping up to a group-wide role.

Drennan becomes Caddick Construction Group’s business development director, including its Midlands and North regional construction businesses.

At Skanska, Clark worked with National Highways to deliver major projects across the strategic road network. He has also spent seven years in business development at ISG with a focus on the defence and justice sectors.

With a remit to support Caddick Construction’s expansion across Yorkshire and the North East, Clark will oversee work winning and performance in the business’ core sectors, including industrial, residential, healthcare and offices.

He will also be focused on Caddick Construction’s strategy to balance its project portfolio across the private and public sectors, the latter including a drive to increase Caddick’s presence on regional procurement frameworks.

Drennan joined Caddick as BD director for Yorkshire and North East in 2022.

She will now have a broadened remit across all regions and businesses that fall under the Construction Group, including Caddick Civil Engineering and the group’s facades contractor, CCL Facades.

Paul Dodsworth, Construction Group managing director, said: “Scott has an excellent track record of leading business development in construction, and with his experience working with the MoJ and MoD through the Crown Commercial Services framework, he has a very strong background in the public sector.

“This experience will be vital in our long-term plans to steadily grow our project portfolio and ensure we have a balanced roster of private and public projects.

“Since her appointment in 2022, Helen has been a fundamental part of our continued expansion and success, and her promotion to lead business development across the Caddick Construction Group will ensure we continue to achieve consistently high standards as we grow.”

Drennan added: “Growing our portfolio and our footprint means growing our team and capability. Part of this is ensuring we align partnerships with the right people so that we continue to operate with integrity, creating a positive working culture and delivering exceptional standards for our clients.

“We’re very excited to have Scott on board and look forward to continued success for each of our regional construction business as well as that of Caddick Civil Engineering and CCL Facades.”

Work recently secured by Caddick Construction includes the 94,000 sq ft extension of Haribo’s West Yorkshire facility.
