A Kier spokesperson said: “Following a very successful career in the highways industry Dave Wright has made the decision to retire from full-time employment and will be leaving the business on 30 September.”

Joe Incutti, Kier Highways’ finance director, will become acting group managing director until a permanent successor is appointed.

Wright, a quantity surveyor by trade, was the managing director of Mouchel’s EM Highway Services business for a decade before Kier bought the business. 

Kier is due to announce its annual results on 19 September.
