New Operational Director for Midas in Wessex and Wales
Midas Construction has appointed Jerry Williams as its new Operational Director for the Wessex and Wales division.
As an experienced construction and civil engineering professional, Jerry’s role will see him take the lead in managing project delivery across what is a key regional division for the Midas Group.
Jerry began his career as an undergraduate civil engineer with Taylor Woodrow, eventually becoming Production Director working within the residential and mixed-use sector. He has enjoyed a diversity of roles within the industry including Education Framework Director at Costain and completing a series of major schemes for Vinci Construction; including Allerton Waste Recovery Park, Swansea University Science & Innovation Campus and, most recently, leading a 1,158-bedroom student accommodation scheme at the University Of Exeter East Park.
Jerry said: “I am very pleased to be here at Midas Construction and one of my first priorities has been meeting the team and getting up to speed on current and upcoming projects across Wessex, Wales and the West Midlands.
“Midas is a successful business, and for me it is about building on that for the future. There is a great ethos within the company, particularly in terms of our emphasis on delivery excellence, customer service and long-term relationships. I am fortunate to be working alongside an excellent group of operational managers and look forward to working closely with them as we take the business forward.”
Derek Quinn, Executive Director at Midas Construction, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jerry to the team. His appointment is an important one for the Wessex and Wales division and his experience and expertise will be a significant asset to us and the wider company.”
