The Kingerlee Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Darren Arekion as Managing Director of both its construction business Kingerlee Limited and its development business Kingerlee Homes Limited. Darren, who will be starting with Kingerlee in June 2018, has over 30 years of experience in the industry having most recently worked with Skanska UK PLC and previously at Galliford Try PLC for many years.

Darren says: “I am delighted to be joining Kingerlee at such an exciting time for the business and I look forward to the challenge of leading the company as it celebrates 150 years of construction.”

Darren will be taking over from both Michael Puttick (Manging Director Kingerlee Limited) and Tony Woodward (Managing Director Kingerlee Homes Limited). Michael is retiring after 17 years’ service with Kingerlee, but does have plans to continue working in the industry through part-time consultancy roles whilst pursuing other personal interests. Tony is retiring after 42 years’ service with Kingerlee, and is looking forward to spending time with his family and to seeing more of the country from the deck of his new narrowboat.

Clive Wiggins (Deputy Managing Director of Kingerlee Limited) has also been appointed as a director of Kingerlee Homes Limited with effect from March 2018.

Chairman David Kingerlee says: “I look forward to Darren joining us in June, and am confident that he will make a hugely positive contribution to the ongoing growth and success of the business. I would also like to give my sincere thanks to both Michael and Tony for all that they have done over many years with Kingerlee, and I wish them both a long and healthy retirement”.
