Steve Bowcott, who has been in the role for six and a half years, will step down in January 2022, to be replaced by current chief operating officer Paul Brown.

“We are very grateful for Steve’s commitment and his service to Sisk since his appointment in 2015 and as his term comes to an end, the board believes that Paul has the skills and qualities to continue to deliver our progressive strategy as the leading Irish construction company.”

Sisk is the contractor undertaking the pioneering Birmingham Health Innovation Campus.
