FM Conway has appointed former Carillion managing director Adam Green as CEO of the family-owned business.

Green takes over from Michael Conway, who steps into the role of chairman.

Michael Conway has been at the helm of FM Conway since 1981 when he bought the company from his father, Frank Conway.

The company started life as a road mending business with just three men and a lorry. Under Michael Conway, it has grown and transformed into an organisation that now employs over 1,500 people with a turnover of over £325m.

Green joined FM Conway in November 2019 as managing director for civil engineering, structures, lighting, water and drainage management, traffic management and consultancy. He previously served as a managing director at Carillion for nine years from 2008 until 2017.

Michael Conway, chairman, said: “My father had a dream in 1961, and by 1981 that dream had been realised so I was passed the baton to take the business to the next stage. Today, it gives me great pleasure to pass that baton on once again; It will now enjoy a fresh pair of eyes and a new set of hands to navigate the business into its 60th year and beyond.

“I’ve known Adam for a long time, and when I brought him into the business it was a chance for us both to understand whether this was a good fit. I am pleased to say that It didn’t take long to realise it was right, and so now is the time for Adam to take on the day-to-day operational lead as I assume the role of chairman. I look forward to seeing our great business continue to go from strength to strength under Adam’s leadership as we all adjust to the post COVID-19 era.”

Adam Green, CEO, commented: “I am both delighted and honoured to take on the prestigious role of CEO of FM Conway. I have long admired the business and am keen to ensure that the strong family values and people remain at the heart of what we do. 

“Our unique self-delivery model truly stands us apart from our competitors and I am excited to explore this even further as we look at new technologies to bring greater levels of service to our customers.”
