Michael Conway has been at the helm of FM Conway since 1981 when he bought the company from his father, Frank Conway. The company started as a road mending business with just three men and a lorry. Michael Conway has grown it into an organisation that now employs more than 1,500 people and has an annual turnover of more than £325m.
Adam Green joined FM Conway in November 2019 as one of four managing directors after nine years at Carillion. His remit was civil engineering, structures, lighting, water & drainage management, traffic management and consultancy.
Michael Conway's daughter, Joanne Garwood, is one of the other managing directors, in charge of aggregates and asphalt operations.
Michael Conway said: “My father had a dream in 1961, and by 1981 that dream had been realised so I was passed the baton to take the business to the next stage. Today, it gives me great pleasure to pass that baton on once again; It will now enjoy a fresh pair of eyes and a new set of hands to navigate the business into its 60th year and beyond.
“I’ve known Adam for a long time, and when I brought him into the business it was a chance for us both to understand whether this was a good fit. I am pleased to say that It didn’t take long to realise it was right, and so now is the time for Adam to take on the day-to-day operational lead as I assume the role of chairman. I look forward to seeing our great business continue to go from strength to strength under Adam’s leadership as we all adjust to the post Covid-19 era.”
