Marr Contracting International has appointed Steve Ryder as general manager of its international operations.


Based in Marr’s London office, Ryder will assume responsibility for managing the business’ UK-based team. He joins Marr after more than 30 years of experience working predominantly across the petrochemical and thermal sectors. “His extensive experience across new build, service, repair and maintenance on large-scale projects in the UK means he understands what is required to deliver in this market,” said Tom Batley, managing director of Marr Contracting International.

“With Marr’s innovative approach to tower crane solutions now available in the UK, it’s about introducing Marr’s way of thinking into the UK’s construction culture as well as the benefits of engaging at the planning stage of a project through an ECI arrangement,” Ryder said.  

Marr opened its London office last year to provide a base for the company’s UK and international business development, as HLPFI reported here
