Laing O’Rourke has confirmed that Olympic construction boss Howard Shiplee will be joining them next month.
Shiplee will leave his £287,000 a year post as Olympic Delivery Authority Construction Director to join the UK’s largest private contractor.
He said "They have got a lot of opportunities there and I look forward to getting started."
Shiplee’s role isn’t yet confirmed although he is fully familiar with the firm after working alongside them at the Olympics where O’Rourke is part of the CLM delivery partner team.
A Laing O’Rourke spokesperson said: “Howard Shiplee will be joining Laing O’Rourke this Autumn following the successful completion of his role as Director of Construction for the Olympic Delivery Authority.”
