Climbing the Deeley ladder

Two former trainees at Deeley Construction have taken the next step in their development with the company.

Matt Lynch and Chris Newman joined the firm on the trainee programme and have now been promoted to commercial manager and contracts manager respectively.

Matt, who joined the company in 2006, has been promoted from senior quantity surveyor and is set to continue his 13 years association with the firm.

He started his career as a management trainee and commercial manager will be the fourth position he has held at the company, after rising through the ranks.

Matt said: “I’m looking forward to helping the firm to improve its commercial offering and to continue my own development in that department.

“I’ve worked on key projects including Holland & Barrett, Union Park and I’m currently working on a Balfour Beatty Homes project.

“Deeley Construction is a great company to work for and I’m looking forward to meeting the challenge of my new role.”

Chris has been with the Deeley Group for six years and has now progressed from site manager to contracts manager.

He has been fast-tracked after proving his ability in each position held since joining as a trainee site manager in 2013.

By 2016, he was already running his own site and will now be contract manager at Plot 1300 on Tachbrook Park in Warwick.

He said: “I began my career at Deeley Construction working on Queensway Court and believe I have continued to progress on each project I’ve worked on.

“It is great to have reached the level I have in such quick time and I am grateful for the tutelage received so far.”

Martin Gallagher, managing director of Deeley Construction, added: “As a company we are committed to the development of our staff and it is fantastic to see how far Matt and Chris have come since joining us as trainees.

“Their promotions are testament to their hard work. I would like to congratulate them both and look forward to seeing their continued development.”
