Lisa Beaman will be responsible for securing high-profile mechanical and electrical (M&E) projects which support SES’ growth in key sectors including pharmaceutical and education, as well as strengthen the firm’s expertise in delivering technically complex builds across the region.
Lisa will be based primarily in SES’ Birmingham office, and joins with more than 20 years’ experience in the engineering industry. She has previously held national business development roles at firms including Balfour Beatty, WSP and Imtech Engineering Services.
She has previously been responsible for securing a number of high-profile M&E projects including The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire – the first purpose-built music college to be constructed in the UK since 1987. Lisa also worked on the multi-million-pound, 62,000 capacity Tottenham Hotspur Football Club Stadium, as well as projects for the University of Birmingham and University of Leicester.
Throughout her career, Lisa has been an advocate of encouraging more women into the construction industry and has sat as Midlands Chair for the National Association of Women in Construction, been an active member of Women in Property, and provided mentoring for a number of women over the years.
Steve Tovey, SES’ regional business director for Midlands & South West, said:
“Lisa’s reputation and experience in the industry speaks for itself. We know she will be a fantastic addition to the team and she brings the construction expertise and contacts that we need to help us continue our growth in the Midlands and South West with new, complex projects in strategic sectors like high-tech, research, health and education.
“Her forward-thinking approach to issues within the industry, combined with her undeniable aptitude for securing large-scale projects meant she was the obvious choice for the role. I’m confident Lisa will help continue to solidify our position in the region as a leading specialist contractor and I look forward to working with her closely.”
“SES is renowned for being a leader in delivering innovative building services, and I’m proud to be building on its stellar reputation in the industry. As a pre-construction manager, I’m responsible for not only securing the project, but helping manage client relationships and bids from beginning to end – a primary reason I was attracted to this position.
“The reduced cost of building in the Midlands and South West is attracting high levels of investment and the region is full of potential builds. I’m looking forward to using my expertise to help spearhead SES’ growth here and help the business achieve its ambitions in 2021 and beyond.”
SES Engineering Services has more than 50 years’ experience in delivering projects across the Midlands and beyond. The firm’s recent projects in the region include the Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) for the University of Bath and the Sandwell Aquatics Centre to deliver a new state-of-the-art facility for the Commonwealth Games.
