Ascona hires director of construction and infrastructure

Forecourt operator Ascona Group has appointed Ian Richards to the newly created role of director of construction and infrastructure.

Reporting directly to the Ascona chief executive Darren Briggs, he will help the leadership team achieve the company’s strategy of reaching 300 sites across the country within the next five years, and will oversee all construction and infrastructure matters including managing development projects.

In line with Ascona’s strategy to develop the next evolution of roadside retail destinations, he  will also oversee the next phase as the company looks to complete 12 knock-down-rebuilds across the portfolio over the next two years.

Richards has joined the business following an extensive career in the downstream oil industry where he worked with Elf Oil, Total UK and Rontec.

Briggs said: “I am delighted to welcome Ian to Ascona. He brings a wealth of relevant experience from across our industry and the excellent management skills needed to deliver extensive building projects. He joins at an exciting point in our journey as we progress the next stage of our growth strategy. I look forward to working with him as we build momentum in our ambition and take Ascona to 300 sites across the UK.”
