Engineering contractor Decmil Australia has appointed Jonathan Holmes as executive general manager, as current managing director Ray Sputore prepares to exit the business.
Mr Holmes will commence in the newly-created role from July.
He was formerly operations manager east for John Holland Minerals and Industrial, based in Brisbane.
The company said the appointment was part of a succession plan developed after Mr Sputore informed the board he would like to "transition out of the business".
Mr Sputore will remain as a director of Decmil Australia.
