Caddick Construction appoints Paul Dodsworth as new Managing Director, making him head of all Caddick’s construction companies. Caddick Construction and its subsidiaries form the construction division of Caddick Group. Paul will assume the position on 1 August 2022.

Paul, who joins from Wates Group where he was Regional Managing Director North, is tasked with continuing Caddick Construction’s vision for strategic geographical and sustainable growth across its divisions.

“We are delighted that Paul is stepping into this exciting role to lead all of our construction businesses. His hands-on approach will strengthen the business and we all look forward to working with him.

“Paul replaces Adrian Dobson, who has retired after almost 23 years on the board. Adrian held the Managing Director Position from 2019 and has been a key member of our board, helping to guide the strong growth of the company into one of the leading and largest independent contractors in the north of England. He will be sadly missed, but we wish him well in his retirement and thank him for his massive contribution since joining us in 1999.”

Andrew Murray, Executive Chairman, Caddick Construction

Paul brings with him over 40 years’ experience across the construction sector and was credited with leading and growing Wates’ Northern Division.

“Paul has the passion and character to take on the formidable challenges the market currently presents. His experience and ability will drive our aspiration for continued growth as a sustainable, forward-thinking business.”

Caddick Construction plans to expand its regions of operation and increase activity in the residential sector. It will also support the growth of Casa by Moda by delivering the construction of Moda Living’s single family home brand, alongside other key projects across Yorkshire, the North East and the North West.

“This is an amazing opportunity and I’m looking forward to being part of the Caddick team that has enjoyed so much success over recent years. I’m particularly excited by the opportunities currently being presented in both the residential and logistic markets.

“I was immensely proud to be asked to join Caddick Construction, a very well established, respected and financially strong business. The aspirations of the business to expand its geographical footprint, whilst further developing the existing regions, is a challenge I will embrace and drive.”
