Balfour Beatty’s Chief Executive of Services, Kevin Craven, is to leave the company to take up a position at services contractor Serco as CEO of its UK central government division.

Craven will take up his new post 1st September after more than four years at Balfour Beatty. Serco appointed him last month.

At Serco, he joins a division that reported revenues of £1.6bn in 2013 and one with a workforce of more than 23,000.

Craven rebranded Balfour’s newly-acquired Haden Building Management in 2008 to Balfour Beatty WorkPlace, before it was sold in 2013, when Balfour Beatty’s Rail UK business joined the Services division, where Craven had been appointed CEO in 2011.

Along with seven other senior managers, including Construction Services chief Nick Pollard, he sat on Balfour Beatty’s executive management committee.
