UWS graduate new head for Barhale Scotland
Civil engineering and infrastructure specialist Barhale has announced the appointment of UWS graduate Lee Hollywood as the new lead for its Scottish operation.
Originally from Saltcoats, Ayrshire, Lee graduated from the BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering programme at UWS in 2007, studying at the Paisley Campus.
Lee joined Barhale in January 2020 and moves into the role from his previous position as senior contracts manager for Scotland. He previously held positions at Morgan Sindall, Farrans and Balfour Beatty Construction. He takes up his position as regional manager immediately.
Barhale director Andy Flowerday welcomed the appointment.
“We are very pleased that Lee has agreed to take on the leadership of our business in Scotland,” he said. “His excellent understanding of site operations, commercial management and a track record of working across the country mean he is ideally suited to the role.
Lee Hollywood believes that Barhale is well placed to continue its recent progress and further develop the business in Scotland.
“We have built a very solid name as a problem-solving business that’s not afraid of difficult civil engineering challenges,” he said. “I am keen to build on that reputation and look forward to driving the continued commercial success of our operations.”
Barhale is one of the largest civil engineering and infrastructure specialists with over 800 employees nationwide and 40 years’ experience working UK-wide across the water, transport, built environment and energy sectors.
