An appointment has been made by Wates Construction, who named David Wingfield as the new Business Unit Director for the North East and Yorkshire region. He will take over the role from Paul Dodsworth, who is stepping up to the role of Managing Director of Wates Construction North.
“I joined Wates as Business Unit Director for the North East and Yorkshire in 2015 and David has been a fundamental part of the business’ success throughout my tenure. I am a very big believer in nurturing the talent within our team and David’s commitment to Wates, along with his extensive knowledge of our business, our culture and the markets within which we work, places him as a perfect successor,” said Paul Dodsworth.
“2019 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year for Wates, which kickstarted with our move to new premises at Paradigm, Thorpe Park. I very much look forward to seeing David take this region forward as we continue to deliver exceptional work across our current and prospective project portfolio,” Paul continued.
In his new role, David will lead the delivery of Wates’ project portfolio within the private and public sectors as the business grows its presence in its core markets of commercial, residential, education and leisure development. His appointment sees him promoted from his position of Regional Commercial Director at Wates, which he held for nine years.
“I am extremely proud to have played a part in Wates’ increasingly impressive reputation in the North East and Yorkshire for almost 15 years and to be charged with the leadership of this great business is a privilege. My previous remit with Wates has been focused on ensuring we deliver sustainable business growth, which in-turn has enabled us to lead the way in terms of investment in training and employment. My intention is to continue to build on this success while ensuring we maintain exceptional levels of quality for our clients, seek out new areas of innovation and sustain our impeccable standards in health and safety,” David added.
