Gangotra, a former chief financial officer of Skanska UK and current CFO at Halma, healthcare sector, will succeed Steve Crummett when he retires from Morgan Sindall at the end of next year. 

Gangotra will be appointed finance director and become a member of the board on a date to be agreed, expected to be around the third quarter of 2024, when Crummett will step down from both roles after 10 years.  

This will allow for a period of transition until he formally leaves the company on 31 December 2024. 

John Morgan, group chief executive officer, said: “I’d like to thank Steve for his exceptional contribution to the board over the last ten years.  Steve has seen the business through a period of significant growth and has helped shape our strategic direction and ensured that the financial stewardship of the business over the last 10 years has supported the group’s long-term growth. 

“I am delighted that Kelly will join the group in 2024 and I look forward to working with her over the years ahead. She has an excellent track record as a CFO working in a decentralised business, is highly experienced in the construction and property industry and her valuable and significant skills and insight will support me and the board as the group continues to develop and grow.”
