Jonathan Willcock to move from Alstom to Skanska in October

Skanska has announced that Jonathan Willcock is to lead its UK infrastructure business from October 2020.

Jonathan will be joining from Alstom, where he has led its systems, signalling and infrastructure business for the last seven years.

Skanska’s infrastructure business delivers design, build and refurbishment expertise. Working closely with its customers, it delivers complex civil engineering projects and infrastructure improvements across the country, in the road, rail and utilities sectors.

Jonathan joins a high-performing team. The River Humber gas pipeline replacement project for National Grid is set to be the longest gas pipeline in a tunnel, inserted in a single string, in the world. And the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme opened eight months ahead of programme in May this year.

Skanska UK president and CEO Gregor Craig said: “Jonathan has a proven track record of leading successful businesses. His senior leadership experience in the construction industry will add greatly to Skanska’s infrastructure expertise. We look forward to welcoming him and working on some exciting upcoming opportunities.”

Jonathan replied: “One of the things that really attracted to me to Skanska is its values and its commitment to responsible business. I’m excited about joining the company and realising the huge potential in the infrastructure market.”
