Balfour Beatty announced three board appointments this week as part of its continuing shake-up of management responsibilities.
Finance director Ian Tyler is now chief operating officer. He is succeeded by Anthony Rabin, managing director of Balfour Beatty Capital Projects. Alistair Wivell succeeds Paul Lester as group managing director with responsibility for construction, building management and services.

Lester left at the end of last month to become chief executive of shipbuilder Vosper Thorneycroft.

In May, the company enlarged its engineering division. This now includes the former major projects division, the regional civil engineering operation and the specialist holdings division, including subsidiaries Stent, Balvac and Rail First.
