HE Simm, one of the UK’s leading engineering and services companies has appointed Dan O’Reilly as its new Pre-Contract Manager for the Engineering Services Division in the south.
Dan, who joined the business six years ago as a Quantity Surveyor, following time spent at Briggs & Forrester and RCC Limited, has since managed a number of the company’s major contracts in the capital as Project and, most latterly, Senior Project Manager.
As part of his role, he has been instrumental in delivering major schemes at the regeneration development at Elephant Park.
Dan’s new remit at HE Simm will be to lead the southern business development and bid team to deliver a best-in-class service for customers.
He will be responsible for the generation of new business, leading and managing the southern pre-contract team to identify, bid and secure key pipeline opportunities. His goal will be to grow sales and profitability in line with HE Simm’s strategic objectives for its London Business Unit.
Dan will work closely with existing clients, develop relationships with targeted new ones, and maximise opportunities in both current and emerging market sectors.
He will also look to secure opportunities for the wider companies, following the announcement of the integration of HE Simm, HESIS and Aspen Thorn last week into one Group of companies.
Gareth Simm, CEO, said of the appointment: “Dan joined us six years ago. He has since proved himself to be a valuable asset to our business and we are delighted to be able to recognise his efforts through this newly created role.”
Dan adds: “I have really enjoyed my time at HE Simm to date. I have a passion for working on and delivering projects, but I’m looking forward to working in more of an end-to-end role that sees me contributing to pre-contract activity, including tenders – right through to being involved in the completion and aftercare of our projects.”
Last month HE Simm won the prestigious Construction News Award 2020 for MEP Specialist of the Year and Specialist Contractor of the Year (Turnover over £25m).
