He is replacing Richard Bailey, who is leaving after 39 years with the company. Mr Bailey said that “the time is right” to pursue other interests outside of BAM.
Douglas Keillor will join the board of BAM Construct UK on 1st August 2016. He joined the company in 1990 and became regional director of BAM Construction in Scotland 2013.
Chief executive Graham Cash said: “Richard Bailey joined the company in 1977 and rose steadily through construction management becoming regional director of BAM Construction in Western in 1995. In 2007, Richard was appointed to the board of BAM Construct UK.
“In all of these roles Richard has been a tremendous supporter of people and he has been a pioneer of countless new ideas from developing sustainability to Zero Harm to lean to collaboration.
“Many people in the company regard Richard as a friend and mentor and he will be missed by all. I want to take this opportunity to thank Richard for giving so generously to the company, especially since 2007 when he has travelled the length and breadth of the regions, barely seeing home from a Monday to a Friday.”
