Skanska promotes Bayliss to global efficiency supremo
Skanska UK executive vice president Roger Bayliss has been promoted to a head office role to improve the efficiency of the Swedish parent company’s global operations.
From 1st February, Mr Bayliss will move from his current position at Skanska UK to be senior vice president, operational efficiency, at Skanska AB.
His remit is to focus on how Skanska's projects and the wider business can become more efficient, profitable and customer-oriented.
Mr Bayliss joined Skanska UK from BAA in 2007, as project director for the £1bn private finance initiative (PFI) redevelopment of two central London hospitals – St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London. He became a member of Skanska UK’s executive management team in 2008 with responsibility for business improvement and has spent the past five years as chief finance officer.
In his new role, Roger Bayliss will report to Mats Williamson, executive vice president of Skanska AB in Sweden.
Mats Williamson said: “Roger has thorough experience from projects, line operations and cross unit collaboration on all levels within Skanska. He is analytical and structured and has with his extensive experience, both in the UK and internationally, been instrumental in developing the focus area of operational excellence.”
Mike Putnam, president and CEO of Skanska UK, said: “During his career, Roger has gained an exceptional breadth of experience across the construction sector, having been both the client and contractor in the UK and overseas. He is a big advocate of modern methods of construction, including building information modelling, offsite fabrication and industrialisation. These are all key components that will help Skanska globally to deliver building and infrastructure projects more safely, sustainably and cost effectively.”
Roger Bayliss added: “With the development of new technologies and construction methods, we are at a time of significant change for the industry. It’s an excellent opportunity to drive more efficient ways of working that deliver the best possible solutions for customers. This new role demonstrates our commitment to leading this change, where we can learn and share best practice from our global areas of operation.”
