RSK appointment to put rail sector on the right track

RSK Group, the UK’s leading integrated environmental, engineering and technical services business, has appointed Adrian Calder as its Business Development Director for the rail sector.

Adrian has a wealth of experience of business development in the construction / infrastructure sectors, having worked in similar roles for several well-known construction organisations, most recently Aspin Group and before that Taziker Industrial. During his time with these organisations Adrian helped secure many frameworks and project wins for and throughout CP5.

Rail is a sector growing year-on-year for RSK and Adrian will be responsible for identifying new opportunities, as well as helping structure the many internal divisions within the Group to maximise return. His role will see him manging the tender process from early contractor involvement, right through to contract award.

Speaking about his appointment Adrian said: “Joining RSK Group was an easy decision, as their reputation is outstanding within the markets they operate. 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 2700 people and turnover in excess of £200m, 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”.

George Tuckwell – Divisional Director – Responsible for RSK Group’s Geoscience & Engineering businesses commented: “Rail is an increasingly important sector for RSK Group and its companies and the appointment Adrian, with his vast experience of the sector, will not only help us generate rail business but also help us understand and structure our proposition to provide rail clients with the service they demand.”
