Former Lend Lease director Simon Parham has joined contractor Osborne

Parham has taken up the post of director for Osborne’s commercial and civic work in London and the South East.

Andy Steele, managing director of construction at Osborne, said: “We are delighted to welcome Simon to Osborne and his appointment in the commercial and civic market will strengthen plans to further extend our services to customers.”

Parham left Lend Lease in May last year amid a management shake-up instigated by then chief executive of Lend Lease’s Europe, Middle East and Africa business Simon Hipperson.

Parham was London Operations Director at Lend Lease, and was one of five senior figures that left the firm between May 2013 and November 2013 including EMEA managing director Michael Dyke.

Hipperson eventually became the sixth senior figure to leave when he exited the firm in November 2013, just over a year after he was appointed.
