CEO steps aside at Aspin Group after overseeing business restructure

Graeme Castle (Pictured) has replaced Russell Ward as the CEO of civil engineering group Aspin.

Ward was appointed CEO of Aspin Group in March 2017, to lead the business turnaround and its restructure. He steps aside to focus on other business interests, including his chairmanships at Heliex Power and Advanced Insulation Group.

His replacement has spent his career in the infrastructure, construction and civil engineering sectors, working for the likes of Laing O’Rourke, Morgan Sindall, Balfour Beatty and ABC Electrification at senior level.

Chair Gren Edwards said: “We are all delighted to welcome Graeme as CEO as we continue our growth plans to meet the future opportunities and deliver expectations.

“We’ve always understood that Russell planned to move at the right time and we’d like to thank him for completing the restructuring programme. Graeme’s leadership and extensive experience is the ideal fit to help Aspin move onwards and upwards to the next level.”

Russell Ward added: “It’s always been my intention to move on as soon as the key objectives of restructuring/financing and re-focus of Aspin were completed.

“That time is now as we’ve strengthened the executive team, re-branded, secured funding for growth from a stable financial base and brought the whole group together as one Aspin.

“It’s been challenging at times but most of all rewarding to see the future-fit results. The credit must go to the great people at Aspin and all our partners.”
