Rob Speirs now takes responsibility for leading the family-owned business’s construction operations across the south coast.
Since joining Stepnell’s Poole office as regional director in summer 2015, he is credited with helping to grow the business in Dorset, Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex.
Completed projects include the refurbishment of Lighthouse, Poole’s arts centre, and the creation of a new spinal support centre at Livability Holton Lee in East Holton, Dorset.
Contracts under construction in the region include Parkstone Yacht Club’s new clubhouse, a retirement complex for Pegasus Life in Woking and an £11.6m care home for Brendoncare in Otterbourne Hill, Hampshire.
“This well-deserved promotion reflects the impressive performance of the company’s operations in Dorset and the south coast under Rob’s direction,” said Stepnell joint managing director Tom Wakeford. “He has developed excellent relationships with our clients and consultants on the south coast which puts us in a strong position in our key markets. Rob is an excellent addition to the board and I am looking forward to his continued contribution to the wider business over the coming years.”
