Alastair Smyth has been appointed Managing Director at Byrne Bros., the specialist concrete frame business, and Trevor Dillon has been appointed Managing Director at Ellmer Construction, the Group’s fit-out, refurbishment and new build specialist.

Alastair Smyth brings with him 25 years’ experience in the construction industry, having worked across the building and infrastructure sectors and held senior positions with major contractors, subcontractors and consultancies.

He has extensive experience of managing the design and construction of complex commercial, industrial and residential contracts, and returns to Byrne Group where he was employed as an engineer some years ago.

Michael Byrne, Byrne Group Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to welcome both Alastair and Trevor who bring a wealth of experience and strong leadership skills. Their experience will be invaluable in delivering on Byrne Group’s long-term strategy and in continuing to provide the highest standards of quality, efficiency and safety for our clients.”
