She has a wide breadth of experience across the building, infrastructure and service sectors, including defence, transportation, education, commercial office, light industrial and healthcare.
Katy joined Skanska in 2003 in a senior commercial position on the Ministry of Defence (MoD) Main Building project, and then the redevelopment of Barts and The Royal London Hospitals.
Following roles in our telecoms utilities and facilities services businesses, Katy joined Skanska UK’s Executive Management Team in 2017. Her responsibilities covered the building business and building services operation, which delivers facilities management and mechanical, electrical and public health engineering.
A highly respected figure in UK construction, Katy sits on the industry-level Construction Productivity Taskforce. She was also a member of the Skanska Costain STRABAG joint venture board, overseeing the delivery of the London tunnels section of High Speed 2.
A passionate advocate for greater inclusivity within construction, Katy chaired the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) for eight years and has been executive sponsor of Skanska UK’s Womxn’s and Pride LGBTQ+ employee networks.
