The creation of this new role highlights the contractor’s ambitions to take a greater share of this important regional market and prove invaluable in helping the business forge strong links with both private and public sector organisations.
A construction sector professional with more than 20 years’ business development and marketing experience, Don will lead the regional business development team for ISG, covering an area stretching from North Nottinghamshire to the Scottish borders and encompassing Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, Humberside and the North East.
Based out of ISG’s Bradford and Newcastle offices, Don’s remit will include developing the contractor’s core sectors within the region, including education, leisure, commercial and retail. He will also be responsible for building on the company’s successful appointment to a range of high profile partnering and framework agreements. Don has been tasked with expanding ISG’s reach geographically, notably into Teesside and Tyneside and will have the responsibility for leading a number of national initiatives to support the regional businesses.
Don commented: “The range and depth of ISG’s experience makes this a dream business development role because we have the expertise in-house to respond to almost any brief and develop cost-effective, workable solutions to address any construction challenge. I’m joining an ambitious and dynamic team and am looking forward to becoming part of the ISG success story as the company continues to grow.”
Joe Webb, ISG director, added: “There is a real opportunity to enhance the visibility of the ISG brand outside of its core regional markets and Don will spearhead our approach to major private and public sector clients within these areas. Despite the economic backdrop, there remains strong demand for those contractors able to demonstrate a consistent and high quality service offering, regardless of geography, and Don’s team will play a critical role in assisting the business in converting these opportunities.”
