Richard Boeg, managing director – building South, said: “With extensive knowledge, having been with Tilbury Douglas for several years, it is great to see Dean promoted to the role of framework director – becoming our strategic operational lead for the SCF and other regional frameworks in the South. 

“We also welcome Steve to the business, bringing with him a strong background in leading operational and commercial teams. I am confident that he will continue to develop and grow the region.”
