Wildgoose chases down new directors

Andrew Tilford

Derbyshire-based construction firm Wildgoose has made two new board appointments.

Andrew Tilford has been hired as commercial director and has taken charge of the company’s business development, estimating, buying and commercial teams.

Tilford has worked for Interserve and Morgan Sindall and joins Wildgoose from Skanska UK, where he was the commercial director of the firm’s £300m Infrastructure Services business unit, delivering high profile Highway Maintenance and infrastructure development contracts across the south of the UK.

He said: “I am delighted to be joining Wildgoose as I will be bringing with me a wealth of construction experience, best practice and risk management technique gained from having spent over 25 years in the industry.

“My appointment will help us to shape the business and enable the successful and sustainable growth of this established, family owned, East Midlands building contracting firm. Key to this will be further developing and establishing long term relationships with our key customers and supply chain partners.”

Meanwhile, managing estimator and pre-construction manager, Richard Hubball, has been promoted to estimating director.
