CHAP Group has appointed two key members of staff as the company continues to target strategic growth.
The Westhill based group, which operates divisions in the construction, commercial property, house building, civil engineering and quarrying sectors, has appointed Dawn Kane as business development manager and Douglas Brand as senior estimator.
Dawn joins CHAP from Muirfield Contracts and brings more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry with her. During that time, she progressed through the ranks, working her way up from clerical assistant to office manager and PA to the managing director to become business development manager. She will have a wide range of responsibilities from identifying and pursuing business opportunities to developing client and industry contacts.
Douglas previously worked for Balfour Beatty Construction Services and Kier Construction and will oversee compiling tenders for new projects, preparing proposal documents and information gathering among other key functions.
Established in 1976, CHAP employs more than 200 people. Earlier this year, the company reported pre-tax profits of more than £1.3million, which have been attributed to demand across all areas of the group as well as a streamlined business model.
Douglas Thomson, CHAP Group joint managing director, said, “We are delighted to welcome Dawn and Douglas to CHAP at what is a very exciting and positive time for the company.
“Dawn has unparalleled experience in the industry and will be an integral asset as we work to push CHAP even further forward and continue the momentum of the past year. Douglas also has a strong background in construction and will bring a very strong skillset with him. We are determined to remain at the forefront of every sector in which we operate and they will both play a key role in ensuring this.”
Dawn said, “I am thrilled to be joining CHAP and I look forward to helping add to the company’s growing list of clients. It has been a fantastic year so far and it is essential to build on this high standard and continue to pursue opportunities across all divisions.”
Douglas Brand added, “CHAP has a fantastic reputation within the industry for great service across the board and I am excited to play my part in the group’s continued success working alongside a hugely experienced team and helping to drive the company even further forward.”
