New era at BTTC as management buy-out completed

We are delighted to announce the successful completion of a management buy-out here at BTTC.

Rob Offord
Managing Director

The company has been acquired by a number of current senior team members, who now head up the new management structure. The new board of directors comprises Managing Director Rob Offord, Vice President of BTTC (Canada) Sam Havill, Operations Director Rhiannon Price, Procurement and Supply Chain Services Director Duncan Golding and Commercial Services Director Joshua Smales.

The change in corporate ownership sees co-founders Kevin McGeever and Nick Spall transfer their equity to the new board.

Rob Offord said: “When we founded the company in 2016, it was always contemplated that Nick and Kevin would take a step-back towards the end of the fifth year and facilitate a new management team to take the business forward.

“Over the last six months, we have been working closely with Nick and Kevin to seamlessly transition management responsibilities to the new management team, and those efforts are now complete. Nick and Kevin’s input into the business during our first five years cannot be understated, and without them we would not have the business that we have today.”

Rhiannon Price
Operations Director

Rhiannon Price said: “The strong standing of BTTC in its position at the forefront of collaborative infrastructure delivery is testament to the dedication and commitment of the whole team over the last five years.”

Sam Havill
Vice President of BTTC (Canada)

Our team will continue to combine its innovative and pragmatic approach to management consultancy, collaboration services and project delivery with extensive experience and expertise.

In addition to consistent growth in the UK, a number of long-term contract wins across Canada has led to the establishment of a permanent office in Toronto. Headed up by Sam Havill, BTTC (Canada) will grow its team, capability and capacity to transform infrastructure delivery across North America.

Rhiannon Price added: “With an incredibly talented team and a client portfolio we are proud of, we are looking forward to steering BTTC into the future. The strategy for the next five years will see continued growth on an international stage, as we look to transform infrastructure delivery worldwide.”

While the impact of COVID-19 has seen a reduction in the number of management buy-outs taking place, our transition takes place at a perfect time for us to move into the next phase of our development and growth.

Building on the co-founders’ successful legacy to drive the business forward, BTTC is now in a strong position to play a widening role internationally as a leading rail infrastructure consultancy.
