Costain appoints new transportation MD


Costain has snapped up Jonathan Willcock, former MD of Skanska UK’s Infrastructure Division, to become the managing director of its transportation division.

Mr Willcock has worked at Skanska for the last three years, helping increase revenue and market share in sectors including highways and rail.

Before that, he spent seven years as the managing director of Alstom Transport UK’s Systems, Signalling and Infrastructure Division, growing the business and winning key work from Network Rail.

He said: ‘The breadth of Costain’s service offering is a unique selling point, and I’m looking forward to building on our relationships with our Transportation customers and showing how we can meet their needs.’

Alex Vaughan, Costain’s chief executive officer, said: ‘Infrastructure will play a significant part in how we respond to the challenges of climate change and boosting economic growth.

'I know that the addition of Jonathan to our executive team will help Costain contribute positively to these challenges and support the growth and diversification of our services across the transportation market.’

Mr Willcock will join Costain in early April.

David Taylor remains interim managing director for transportation until then.
