Skanska replaces departed innovation director
Skanska has filled the role vacated by innovation director Sam Stacey, who departed last month for a position with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
Felipe Manzatucci has been appointed director of digitalisation and will take over Stacey’s responsibilities, with the goal of boosting Skanska productivity in the UK through adoption of new technology.
He will be responsible for the implementation of the contractor’s digitalisation strategy, application of digital processes and tools, plus the deployment of specialist knowledge throughout the business.
Manzatucci was previously an operations manager with Skanska, where he has worked since joining the firm as a graduate design engineer in 2006.
Stacey is leading UKRI’s Transforming Construction Challenge, a £170m research and innovation fund, which aims to identify innovative new construction processes and techniques.
