North Construction & Building Ownership Transition

North Construction & Building is pleased to announce its ownership transition plans.
After working in the business for 25 years, including almost 20 years as Managing Director, Tim Cornish will be handing the reins over to Matthew Cook at the end of 2018. Matthew has been at North since 2001 and a director of the business since 2008. Additionally, Ray Millar, Estimating Manager, and John Melvin, Senior Project Manager, will both take on director roles. Joshua Sheather and Darren Wilton will continue as shareholders.
‘I believe this change is an opportunity to strengthen the resolve of the business to lead the industry in this region as a professional, values-driven company,’ expressed Tim Cornish. ‘Given North’s position in the current market combined with the capabilities of our leadership team, I feel the time is right for me to exit the business to explore long-held personal aspirations outside the construction industry.’
In continuing the history as an employee-owned business, ownership of North will be expanded to include Nicole Redmond, Corporate Services Manager; Sarah Wouters, Finance Manager; Richard Telfer, Senior Project Manager; Ryan Wheele, Site Manager; Grant Cameron, Apprentice Manager; Gareth Stephens, Project Manager; and Daniel Surridge, Project Manager.
‘The future is bright for North,’ stated Matthew Cook, Director and incoming Managing Director. ‘I will ensure the continuance of Tim’s legacy of the company’s success and growth being driven by our pursuit for excellence across all aspects of business; from management of staff, to systems and processes and, of course, in the delivery and completion of every one of our construction projects.’
