Jim Marner, who is also currently president of the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA), has joined Interserve Engineering Services (IES) as northeast regional director.
His departure from SES comes just seven months after its takeover by Wates.
During his career with SES, Mr Marner served as divisional operations director, national pre-construction director and most recently business development director. He set up a new regional operation in the northwest as well as taking on the role of non-executive director of the company’s offsite manufacturing facility.
At Interserve, he will be reporting directly to IES managing director Mike Knowles.
Mr Marner said: “I am relishing this new opportunity, which gives me the chance to use my wide industry experience in a new setting. Interserve is an impressive business with both continued growth and excellent stakeholder returns built on quality of delivery via a highly talented workforce. I look forward to contributing to its ongoing success.”
