Shakeup at parent company installs regional chief as head of Europe, Middle East and African divisions

Bovis Lend Lease is to come under the leadership of Daniel Labbad as part of a major shake up at its Australian parent company Lend Lease.

Under the global restructure, announced today, Labbad becomes regional chief executive officer for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He previously oversaw Lend Lease’s development business in Europe, but not Bovis, the company’s construction division.

Bovis Lend Lease chief executive Nick Pollard will now report to Labbad, rather than back to Australia as under the current structure. Catalyst Lend Lease, the UK PPP business, will also come under Labbad.

Labbad is one of four regional CEOs to be appointed under the restructure, which shifts Lend Lease back to a regional structure from the business-stream model it has operated under in recent years.
