He replaces outgoing chief executive, Paul Hamer, who has led the business for the past seven years and a company restructure that focused on sectors instead of a regional operating model. 

Martin had until recently occupied the same role at Lendlease Europe, where he has worked since the early 90s with its predecessor Bovis.  

Group chairman, Ed McAlpine, said: “Neil brings the essential skills and experience required to lead our business, with a clear focus on project selection and excellence in delivery.  

“As well as welcoming Neil, we wholeheartedly thank outgoing chief executive, Paul Hamer, for his leadership and work over the last seven years to well position the business for the future.” 

Martin said: “Sir Robert McAlpine is one of the most respected businesses in the sector. Its reputation for building excellence and enviable 155-year history sets it apart from others.  

“It is an absolute honour to become chief executive of a company that has worked on some of the country’s most iconic landmarks.”
