PAISLEY-based construction business, The JR Group, has appointed three new directors to the board, which will include a shareholding in the business for the promoted colleagues.
Andrew Dallas becomes projects director; John Murdoch has been appointed construction director; and Craig Whyte becomes commercial director. The trio will join Gary McGregor and John Horne on the board from April 2, 2019.
Managing director Gary McGregor said, “We have ambitious growth plans and to fulfil them we need to be attracting the best talent. Andrew, John and Craig all have a very different skill set and we are delighted they have taken up our offer. Their experience will add depth to the board.”
The move comes as the company celebrates a planned rise in turnover and the launch of a new commercial property division. There are also plans to diversify further in 2020 with the introduction of the group’s first bespoke private housing project.
Director John Horne added, “These appointments demonstrate our desire for sustained growth and we will look at future opportunities to strengthen the board further as required. We are keen to position the group as a market leader and provide a complete service to the construction industry. We are fortunate that the group has secured a number of high profile projects recently, but we are always looking forward to pursuing new opportunities.”
The JR Group, which was founded in 1995, employs around 170 staff. The firm started life as a scaffolding business.
