Derby-based specialist contractor Cawarden has strengthened its board with three key internal promotions. The announcement sees Malcolm Lowes, Oliver Crooks and Samuel Crooks joining the Cawarden board of directors with immediate effect.

Demolition director Malcolm Lowes is an experienced demolition professional who has a wealth of experience in all forms of demolition; from simple structures to the delivery of complex multi-million-pound schemes all over the UK.

He has responsibility for the logistical planning and safe delivery of all demolition works. He has more than 40 years of industry experience under his belt and 17 of those have been with Cawarden. 

Bringing their new approaches and fresh perspectives, brothers Oliver and Samuel Crooks have also received promotions. Oliver has stepped up to the role of commercial director from commercial manager and Samuel to contracts director from demolition manager.

Oliver is responsible for Cawarden’s commercial and tendering activity, including estimating all types of demolition and site clearance works. He is also responsible for the development of the company's value proposition to offer clients standalone services or an integrated "destruction to construction" solution.

Samuel oversees the site management teams who are tasked with the delivery of demolition schemes up to and exceeding the value of £3m and is responsible for overall contract delivery and client satisfaction.

Samuel formerly joined the business in 2012 and Oliver in 2013. The brothers have worked hard to get to where they are today, beginning their careers on-site as demolition operatives and rising through the ranks from there. They have built up a wealth of knowledge, practical experience and through training and development, they have had their competencies recognised with top qualifications.

Cawarden managing director William Crooks said: “I am delighted to announce the promotion of three highly capable colleagues from within the team who all bring their vital experience and fresh perspectives to the board. The move supports our long-term plans to maintain stability and sustainable growth.”
