Highways maintenance and civil engineering contractor, JPCS, has appointed a new head of business development as part of its national expansion in the highways sector. Richard Forde-Johnston of NSM joins JPCS to strengthen national business development. Richard, who has successfully managed sales growth strategies for brands such as Vodafone and Telefonica, will be based in the North of England.
“It’s great to be once again growing the JPCS team; we’re not only expanding in numbers but also in new areas across the North and South of the country. Both David and Richard’s experience in sales and growth strategies is impressive and will no doubt add substantial value to our existing highways team.”
Jenny Neville, Director
This new appointment will drive forward the JPCS offering to the highways sector and fortify the robustness of its service. Richard will also expand on JPCS’s growing reputation for the use of environmentally friendly products, such as Rejuvopatch, a cost effective and sustainable method of carrying out repairs to road defects – and Groundscrew, a sustainable alternative to concrete foundations for highway signage and street furniture. JPCS maintains highway and railway infrastructure across the UK and is also the leading installer of ground mounted solar PV foundations. The company works with clients such as Balfour Beatty, the Highways Agency, British Gas, Carillion, Eurovia and several local authorities nationwide.
