Former Sellar chief to lead civils contractor Kilnbridge

Civil and structural engineering contractor Kilnbridge has appointed former Sellar chief operating officer Owen Dannatt as its new CEO.

The move follows the decision by Kilnbridge founder and CEO Dermot McDermott to take up the role of Chairman after 33 years at the helm.

Dannatt is a chartered civil engineer who spent his early career with Taylor Woodrow before joining the real estate world culminating in his senior role at Shard developer Sellar.

McDermott said, “Assuming the role of Chairman at Kilnbridge is a natural evolution of the strategic changes in our business over the last few years, especially the transition to employee ownership in 2021.

McDermott founded Kilnbridge in 1992

“My personal priority has been ensuring that we are planning for the future of the business and its people. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved as a company, and I am excited to continue contributing to Kilnbridge’s success in this new capacity.”

Dannatt added: “I am thrilled to join Kilnbridge as the new CEO. I am deeply committed to building upon the strong foundations laid by Dermot and the entire team. Our valued customers will remain our focus as we continue to innovate in delivering excellence for them, and grow the business.”
