Adam Crossley joined Skanska in 2007 after four years in the 7th Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery. For the past two years has been business transformation director in its utilities business.
Crossley takes over from Jennifer Clark in Skanska’s senior management team following her promotion in April this year to senior vice president, sustainability, for Skanska’s world-wide operations.
Skanska UK executive vice president Roger Bayliss said: “It’s essential that we have the right leaders in place to make sure that we effectively manage our growth plans over the coming years. Our aim is to build on our leading position as a green contractor, developing sustainable solutions that benefit society and the local communities in which we work.
“Adam brings broad industry experience and a unique perspective, having set up his own charity, the Sophie Hayes Foundation, in his personal life. I very much look forward to working with Adam over the coming years as we continue to drive our sustainability journey.”
