akp has taken the bold step of strengthening its Management Team from the top with the appointment of Martin Rowley as Joint Managing Director. (Pictured on the left with Ian McEwan). Martin will work alongside Ian McEwan to help the company develop and expand over the coming months.
Martin has over 30 years’ experience within the construction industry in a career that began at Glasgow Health Board where his role as Estates Manager saw him driving Capital Projects and FM.

I’m confident that Martin will bring new skills and knowledge to the team and play a key role in providing and implementing high quality solutions for our clients.”
