The move follows Rick Willmott stepping into the role of executive chairman at the start of 2024, with previous CFO Graham Dundas succeeding him as Willmott Dixon’s chief executive. 

Mackenzie, who will also join the company’s main board, was previously CFO at Willmott Dixon’s joint venture partnership with EcoWorld London, a position he held for six years and where he will continue to support.  

Prior to this, he held senior positions at Balfour Beatty, Berkeley Group and Kier. 

Chief executive, Graham Dundas, said, “I’m delighted James is joining us, as Rick, the main board and I already know him well from his previous role.  

“He is closely aligned with our culture, values and ethos and brings a lot of existing knowledge of Willmott Dixon. 

“James’ breadth of experience will neatly complement our main board and we are really looking forward to working with him to deliver our future growth plans.”
