Wildgoose adds two new faces to board

A new appointment has been made to the board of directors at Derbyshire based Wildgoose Construction.

Andrew Tilford has been appointed as Commercial Director and has taken charge of the company’s business development, estimating, buying and commercial teams.

Tilford has worked for Interserve and Morgan Sindall and joined Wildgoose from Skanska UK, where he was the Commercial Director of the firm’s £300m Infrastructure Services business unit, delivering high profile Highway Maintenance and infrastructure development contracts across the south of the UK.

He said: “I am delighted to be joining Wildgoose as I will be bringing with me a wealth of construction experience, best practice and risk management technique gained from having spent over 25 years in the industry.

“My appointment will help us to shape the business and enable the successful and sustainable growth of this established, family owned, East Midlands building contracting firm. Key to this will be further developing and establishing long term relationships with our key customers and supply chain partners.”

Alongside Tilford’s appointment, Managing Estimator and Pre-Construction Manager, Richard Hubball, has been promoted to Estimating Director.

Further strengthening the board of directors at Wildgoose follows £40m of recent contract wins and the recruitment of eight new staff.

Projects won by the Alfreton based company include an £8.8m 84-bed care home in Stonnall, Staffordshire, on behalf of the Restful Homes Group, Brackley Primary Care Centre, in Northamptonshire, in a contract worth £9.3m and a 69-bed £6.9m care home in Ampthill, Bedfordshire.

Another contract win announced recently involves a high profile £6.7m project to remodel Northampton Museum and Art Gallery for Northampton Borough Council.

Jonathan Wildgoose, Executive Chairman of Wildgoose Construction, says: “Andrew brings a breadth of experience that will only serve to strengthen our board of directors even further along with the promotion of Richard. Coming on the back of a number of recent awards and high profile contract wins, these appointments are a further sign of exciting times at Wildgoose Construction.”

Earlier this year Wildgoose scooped Best Commercial Project at the Local Authority Building Control (West Yorkshire) Building Excellence Awards 2018. The award was given to

Wildgoose for building Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax, which was designed by Matlock architects Evans Vettori, and also recently won a Royal Institute of British Architects Yorkshire award. Wildgoose was also a finalist in the East Midlands Chamber awards in the Excellence in Customer Service category.

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
