Seddon appoints head of business development and marketing

Seddon has appointed Phil Burgess as head of business development and marketing.

Phil joins Seddon from national capital works, regeneration and support service company Willmott Dixon where he was company sales and marketing manager.

In his new role, he will drive new business development nationally for Seddon, securing opportunities with existing and new clients and developing new markets. The £200 million turnover construction business this month completed its formal separation from Seddon Group as part of a reorganisation of ownership. The newly-independent business – which remains in the ownership of the Seddon family - is now strongly placed to take advantage of the resurgent market.

Phil says: "I am delighted to be joining Seddon at such an exciting time and look forward to working with the Seddon family and the directors to develop new opportunities while drawing on the firm’s traditional strengths. Despite the challenges faced by the construction sector over the past few years, Seddon has both retained its traditional family values and at the same time, planned for the future, leaving the company in a superb position to continue to grow in a recovering market.”

Seddon managing director Jonathan Seddon says: "Phil has an impressive track record of securing business opportunities in the public and private sectors, winning major frameworks, development-led schemes, regeneration projects and specialist public services schemes. I’m delighted to have attracted someone of his calibre to join us and drive our business development and marketing strategy at this key time for the business.”
