Gavin Pritchard has rejoined Osborne as commercial director for the Infrastructure business. He previously worked for the company from 1994 to 2002, reaching the role of commercial manager.
Since then he has worked for Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering, Alstom and ABB, where he was project director leading the team delivering the £500 million Caithness Moray high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission link.
Now he is back at Osborne to support its progressive growth in major multi-disciplined transport infrastructure projects where annual sales have increased by nearly 50 per cent in the last two years, to £175 million.
Welcoming him back to Osborne, managing director John Dowsett said: “At Osborne, we strive to do things differently and provide more efficient and effective outcomes for our customers. Gavin’s introduction will further strengthen our leadership team and provide us with learning and best practice opportunities from outside our industry sector, which can be translated into our Customer’s programmes.
“An added bonus is that Gavin is yet another talented individual returning to Osborne. Gavin previously worked with us for eight years, culminating in the role of commercial manager in our first frameworks with Network Rail in 2002. Knowing that Gavin understands exactly what it means to live and breathe the values and behaviours that make us different, was a key factor in his appointment.”
Gavin replaces Simon McCausland, who will be taking up a new role at Osborne as group projects director.
