New senior appointment supports South East growth for Midas
The Midas Group has announced a significant new appointment to its senior management team to continue the company’s expansion in the South East of England.
Peter Whitmore (pictured left) has joined Midas, one of the largest independent construction companies in the UK, in the role of Divisional Director for the Southern region.
He will be based at the company’s regional head office, near Southampton, and will continue to drive the company’s highly successful Southern division, where Midas first opened a regional office in 2008.
Peter has more than 25 years’ experience within the construction industry. He joins the company having previously held the role of Business Unit Director for Wates in the South and South West. He has also held a number of senior leadership roles with Morgan Sindall.
Peter takes over the reins from Paul Strachan, who has become Divisional Director for Midas in the South East, with a focus on extending Midas’s activities further across the South East region - including establishing a new regional headquarters.
Midas has experienced strong growth over recent years across the South East and the company is already delivering on several major developments in the region, including large schemes in New Malden and Seaford, near Brighton.
Alan Hope, Chief Executive of The Midas Group, said: “This appointment is a significant move for Midas. Peter will play a crucial role in the continued growth of Midas in the South, with the target of reaching a £100 million turnover per annum in the region. With improving market conditions and a reputation built on delivering industry leading customer service and performance, this is an exciting time for Midas.”
Peter Whitmore said: “I’m delighted to be joining Midas, one of the UK’s largest and most successful independent construction companies. There are significant opportunities for the group in the South and South East and I look forward to working with Alan and Paul to build on the success that Midas has already achieved in the region over recent years.”
