Robertson Construction England has announced a significant appointment to its newest business after Natalie Walker was named as the Business Development Manager for Robertson Yorkshire and East Midlands.
With more than 10 years of experience in the construction industry and the international retail market, Natalie is aiming to help the business increase turnover to £55 million by developing relationships with partners and clients in the region. She will operate from the company’s Sheffield office.
Natalie said: “It’s wonderful to be a part of Robertson and to join a rapidly growing and exciting business covering Yorkshire and the East Midlands.
“The new business is going from strength to strength, as Robertson plans to build on its success in Scotland by becoming a dominant force and construction leader south of the border.
“I look forward to increasing our partnering opportunities and working with a wide range of organisations, with the hotel and higher education sectors of particular interest. This will strengthen our reputation as the contractor of choice, delivering real value for our expanding range of clients in the months and years ahead.”
Natalie joins Robertson Yorkshire and East Midlands after enjoying a successful career which began when she pursued a degree in construction project management at Salford University, where she was sponsored by a major national contractor.
She then spent five years as a project planner, working on an array of developments in and around Greater Manchester including Manchester United Football Club’s corner quadrant stands and the redevelopment of Manchester Arndale shopping centre.
A change of direction saw Natalie enhance her career by gaining global business experience after relocating to the Middle East.
Paul Turner, regional managing director of Robertson Yorkshire and East Midlands, said: “I am delighted to welcome Natalie to the team.
“Her diverse experience, underpinned by her in-depth knowledge of the construction sector, means she will be a huge asset to the Robertson business and I look forward to watching her work with the rapidly expanding Yorkshire and East Midlands team on the path to becoming the region’s leader in the construction industry.”
