Graham Hill has left Balfour Beatty “to pursue opportunities outside of the business”

A Balfour Beatty spokesperson said: “We can confirm that Graham Hill is leaving to pursue opportunities outside of the business.”

The firm did not comment on the search for his successor.

Hill’s departure follows that of UK construction boss Dean Banks towards the end of last year. He left after five years at the business, having joined from banknote manufacturer De La Rue.

This month Banks started work as the new chief executive of infrastructure services firm Ventia which is based in Sydney and works across Australia and New Zealand.
