Balfour Beatty’s chief executive, Ian Tyler, said: “Our strong, continuing growth makes it appropriate to strengthen further Balfour Beatty’s senior management team. Anthony Rabin has done an excellent job as finance director since 2003 and will now, together with some other responsibilities, take direct responsibility for the direction and development of our very substantial infrastructure investment business, which is a strategic priority for the group.

"The structure of the group’s construction and engineering activities, which continue to report directly to me, will also evolve over time as the business increases in scope and scale.

“Since joining us in 2006 as Anthony’s deputy, Duncan has amply demonstrated his suitability to step up into the senior finance role and I am delighted to announce his appointment as finance director.”
