RMD Kwikform, Interserve’s £200m shoring and formwork business, was put up for sale in February. Its new owner will not get the benefit of Steve Dance’s experience. He has been managing director of the Equipment Services division, including RMD Kwikform, since 2004.
In a statement, Interserve said that Mr Dance would “support the group in a number of areas during his notice period, and will continue to report to Adrian Ringrose, chief executive”.
In his place, Ian Hayes has been appointed managing director of the Equipment Services division. Mr Hayes has been a divisional director of Equipment Services since 2007 and currently leads the division's Europe, Far East and Americas businesses.
Mr Ringrose said: "I would like to thank Steve for his significant contribution to Interserve over the last 12 years, in particular, for his leadership and development of the Equipment Services business, which he leaves in good shape and with a strong management team, led by Ian Hayes, to drive its future development."
Steven Dance was appointed to the board of Interserve in January 2008 and he is also the board’s lead director in health and safety.
