ISG chief executive and finance director exit

ISG chief executive Matt Blowers and finance director Karen Booth are exiting the business in an on-going leadership shake-up.

Company veteran Blowers steps down with immediate effect after 26 years at ISG, and the last two years serving as chief executive.

He will be followed out of the door by finance director Karen Booth, who has also been with the firm for 14 years, and will step down in March.

The top-level shake-up at the £2.2bn turnover contractor will see chief operations director Zoe Price become new chief executive, with Andrew Page brought in as interim chief financial officer.

Prices’s 12-year career at ISG includes other previous roles as group director for public sector frameworks and COO for UK Construction.

She said: “I’d like to pay tribute to the contribution that both Matt and Karen have made to the ISG business.

“We have not been immune to the challenging landscape of the construction industry over the past few years, but our focus on collaboration and quality delivery, alongside our investment in our people have characterised this period.

“Looking forward, I’m determined to build on this legacy, but also seek to more fundamentally reset how our business, and the wider industry responds to the growing challenges to our sector.”

The top level departures follow other senior directors who are understood to have left or be leaving ISG.

These include Charlie Versie, group operational excellence director, and Paul Dempster, major projects director.
