Ed Weston has become regional commercial director for Yorkshire and Patrick Kettlewell has been appointed to pre-construction director for the North of England. 

Since joining GMI almost six years ago as senior quantity surveyor and later commercial manager, Weston has delivered several key projects, including a £200 million train manufacturing facility for Siemens Mobility in East Yorkshire. 

His role will see him work alongside Andrew Hurcomb, GMI’s regional director for Yorkshire, to further grow and lead delivery within this key region. 

Kettlewell’s role will see him take the lead across GMI’s three northern divisions – Yorkshire, North West and North East.  

He joined GMI’s team in Leeds in 2014 as senior estimator before becoming managing estimator, then senior pre-construction manager for Yorkshire and the North East. Prior to that Kettlewell spent a decade as a senior estimator. 

Lee Powell, CEO of GMI, said: “Both bring extensive experience to the senior leadership team and will further strengthen our commitment to excellence and innovation. 

“Ed, who has risen through the commercial ranks, has consistently demonstrated an ability to deliver high-quality and high-profile projects, including the Siemens Mobility project.” 

“Patrick, who has been an integral part of the team since 2014, also brings a wealth of expertise and will play a pivotal role in coordinating and delivering pre-construction phases across the North of England which will involve establishing and maintaining relationships with new and existing clients.” 

Adding: “These appointments represent GMI Construction Group’s ongoing commitment to assembling a team of dedicated professionals who bring unmatched experience and expertise to our projects. We look forward to the positive impact that both will undoubtedly have on our operations in Yorkshire and beyond.”
