Crossfield Group has strengthened its growing team with two high profile appointments from major tier one contractors.
Former Wates Commercial Manager, Tom Dillon, will lead commercial operations across Crossfield Group, which has Construction, Living and Development arms.
Meanwhile, Stuart Belfield has made the move from Willmott Dixon to become Operations Manager within Crossfield Living. He brings with him more than 30 years’ experience in the construction sector.
The addition of the two senior team members further continues Crossfield’s growth as a business. Since it was founded in 2012 by Managing Directors David Cain and John Paul Cassidy, Crossfield has grown to more than 50 staff and is projected to turn over £35m this year.
Like Dillon and Belfield, many members of the senior team at Crossfield, including Cain and Cassidy, boast significant experience working for some of the region’s and nation’s largest contractors, including Wates, Willmott Dixon, Kier, Pochin, and Vinci.
Tom Dillon and David Cain have a long-standing working relationship having worked together at Wates. David said “I worked with Tom for the best part of eight years and personally learned a huge amount from him. Because of that, it’s particularly good to be able to welcome him to the Crossfield Team as I know just how much experience he has to share and what he will bring to our commercial activities across the Group.”
Tom Dillon said “I’m very pleased to be joining Crossfield Group. It’s a growing business with an excellent reputation and is based in my hometown of Liverpool. I know firsthand that the leadership team here is experienced and astute as well as being fresh and agile, which is quite a powerful combination and accounts for their significant growth in recent years.”
The Speke-based business works across both the public and private sectors and currently has a range of high-profile projects underway including a development of 130 residential apartments in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle and a large partnership in place with social housing provider, Onward to create 65 affordable new homes across the North West. They also recently completed Hugh Baird College St Winefride’s Campus and a Medical Centre in Hunts Cross.
As a senior appointment within Crossfield Living, Stuart Belfield will further bolster a team which is enjoying significant success in both public and private sector residential development schemes. Stuart worked with Crossfield Living Director David Dobson for a number of years at Willmott Dixon, and commenting on the move Dobson said “Stuart brings with him a wealth of experience from a major player in construction so attracting him to join Crossfield Living is a real coup for us. Our Living division has enjoyed a very successful year and we have a strong pipeline ahead of us, so further strengthening our team with Stuart’s appointment is important for us in continuing this success.”
Stuart said “Crossfield has become a really strong name in the construction industry and the team here is earning respect for being dynamic, knowledgeable and competent, so it’s a pleasure to be able to join them and support their continued growth.”
