Interserve has appointed Bouygues chief operating officer Craig Tatton as the managing director of its regional building business.

Tatton (pictured), who has joined the main board of the firm’s construction division, left Bouygues last month after three years.

Prior to that, he held managing director roles at Willmott Dixon and ISG over a nine year period, and was also an operations manager at Laing O’Rourke for 16 years until 2002.

Interserve’s regional building business works out of 10 UK offices with turnover of around £500m. It typically undertakes refurbishment and new build projects generally up to £50m within sectors including health, education, justice, defence, civil government and commercial.

It said Tatton, along with the local leadership teams, will continue to focus on organic growth and work with the wider construction board in supporting the development of projects up to £250m.

Gordon Kew, managing director of Interserve, added that as an experienced senior executive, Tatton’s track record of delivering organic growth is “enviable”.
