Former Rider Levett Bucknall boss Lance Taylor starts work this week as the new chief executive of Kent builder Gallagher Group.

Taylor (pictured) left RLB in 2014 after seven years in charge to join Persimmon as its development director for the south-east. He later became regional chairman of the housebuilder.

His CV includes spells at Tarmac, Birse, later bought by Balfour Beatty, and Sisk.

He replaces outgoing chief executive Nick Yandle who is leaving Gallagher at the end of the year after 13 years at the business which is based in Aylesford.

Gallagher reported a pre-tax profit of £7.3m on turnover of £60m in the year to September 2017.

The firm brought in former Laing O’Rourke director Steve Hollingshead as a non-exec earlier this year.
