We are delighted to announce the arrival of Mark Butler, Key Accounts Director.

Mark has over 20 years’ experience of overseeing construction contracts, and was most recently commercial director of EM Highways Limited where he played a key role in securing a number of mandates from the Highways Agency.  Prior to that, he was commercial director at the drainage company Flowline where he helped deliver increased profitability.

His experience also includes senior roles at Atkins plc, Amey Highways, Accord plc and Thames Water.  He began his career as a trainee with Amey Construction where he graduated as a quantity surveyor.

Toppesfield has recruited Mark to its senior management team to add heavyweight experience and broaden the company’s expertise even further.

Toppesfield founder, Matthew Pryor, said: “Our track record of profitable growth is evidence of our success in putting in the right bids for the right contracts.  However, we don’t rest on our laurels or believe that we already have all the answers and Mark will be a valuable addition to our team.  We expect his experience to lead to even more high profile project wins, which will build on the very strong foundation we have laid over the last eleven years.”

Mark Butler said: “Toppesfield is a major success story in the road construction sector and what has been particularly impressive is its ability to retain both its level of customer service and its culture while expanding rapidly – it’s not an easy thing to do.  I’m looking forward to adding my experience to the team and being part of the next phase of the company’s success.
