RSK appointment to oversee rail growth

Aspin Group’s former head of business development has joined RSK Group.

Adrian Calder, the new business development director for rail, will be responsible for identifying new opportunities in the sector, in which RSK has experienced year-on-year growth. Managing the tender process will also be a key part of his role.

George Tuckwell, divisional director for geoscience and engineering at RSK, said that rail is “an increasingly important sector” for the company and that Adrian will help to generate further business and allow RSK to better structure its proposition to potential rail clients.

Adrian added: “The rail sector presents a huge opportunity to continue the excellent growth pattern that RSK Group has seen over the past few years, both organically and through strategic acquisitions.

“Even with over 2,700 people and turnover in excess of £200 million, remaining agile and a specialist to our clients is key. Having a family of synergistic companies under the same privately-owned Group, allows us to operate in this way.”
