ICA19 Shortlisted Nominee.
Chief Executive of the Year
Paul Hamer is Chief Executive Officer at Sir Robert McAlpine, a leading family-owned building and civil engineering company operating across the UK. He has created a five-year strategy that sets the path for Sir Robert McAlpine to be the best builder and the best place to work. He believes that, all too often, companies make the right noises about inclusion but fail to follow up with solid action. To address this, he has committed to leading by example and inspiring industry-wide change. Paul has made inclusion the cornerstone of the People strategy and championed the development of a plan that includes practical steps and key progress measures for employees at all levels, with the aim of achieving specific goals before the end of the year. His message is simple: “Everyone is welcome at Sir Robert McAlpine.”
