Structure and Governance

Keltbray Group is governed by an Executive Board, which has 11 members and is led by Chairman, Tony Douglas (pictured left). Chief Executive Officer, Brendan Kerr (pictured middle) and Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Group Finance Director, John Keehan (pictured right), have ultimate responsibility for the company’s overall performance and strategic direction.

Under Brendan Kerr’s leadership, Keltbray Group has developed two main business streams, including Specialist Contracting Services (80%) and Rail & Infrastructure (20%). Within these streams, there are a number of companies and divisions, which are headed up by Managing Directors, who are responsible for operational performance and for implementing the principals and policy framework of the Group.

The operating businesses are supported by centralised Training and Health & Safety, Quality and Environment functions, which report to the Board.

Keltbray is independently audited to ensure governance and compliance against internal, ISO and industry standards through alignment with the Considerate Constructors and Local Authority Considerate Contractor schemes.

This governance structure ensures that in addition to a sound financial performance, Keltbray operates safely, ethically, sustainably and responsibly, with qualified professionals in all areas of the business.
