Morgan Sindall’s commercial director Paul Whitmore has resigned after 13 years with the company.

Whitmore, who was Laing Construction’s managing director before taking up the role of commercial director at Morgan Sindall in 2000, will leave the £2bn turnover firm at the end of the year it announced this morning.

Whitmore is the latest in a number of senior departures from the contractor in recent months.

At the end of October, Building revealed that its London boss Peter Jacobs was exiting and earlier that month that Steve Elliot, the boss of its £400m fit out business had left.

These followed a number of other senior management changes in the construction group over the previous 12 months including the departure of chief executive Paul Smith and finance director David Mulligan and executive chairman John Morgan re-taking the reins as chief executive.

Chairman Adrian Martin said: “The board would like to thank Paul for his considerable contribution to the development of the group over the last 13 years and wishes him the very best for the future.”
