This month, Peter Casey announced that his son, Chris, will step up as Group Managing Director of The Casey Group Ltd, effective 8th April.

In a statement that re-iterated how difficult trading conditions had been over recent years, and how Casey must remain competitive whilst still delivering the high standards on which its reputation is built, Peter Casey said, “In a total re-appraisal of our present management structure we have assessed who would be best placed to take the business forward to the next dimension, and I am pleased to say that we are to appoint my son Christopher as the new Group Managing Director.”

To make way for Chris, Tony Chell has moved to the position of CEO to concentrate on strategy and special projects.

Chris said this about his new role, “The past few years have been a really challenging time for Casey but I am excited about taking on this responsibility.  Casey is a family business and this allows us to think and act with the long term in mind.  As Peter has said previously, long term business friendships are more valuable than short-term business gains.  I am committed to maintaining those relationships and ensuring that we continue to grow our reputation and presence in the construction, environmental and ancillary sectors.”

The Casey Companies have a strong reputation in the social housing refurbishment and environmental sectors with activities spanning construction, land reclamation, public realm and environmental works, developments and construction plant hire.

Now in its 45th year, the key behind the success of the group is its ability to stay in touch with the ever changing requirements of the market and expectations of customers.
