​UGL appoints new CEO

Ross Taylor has been appointed as the new CEO and managing
director of UGL.

He will officially step in to the role on the 24th
of November, replacing current CEO Richard Leupen.

Prior to joining UGL Taylor was the group CEO at Tenix, and
was formerly the group COO at Lend Lease.

He will be brought on with a salary of approximately $1.5
million.

It comes after UGL split its business in to two streams, an
engineering, construction and maintenance business and a property services business
in August last year.

Following that UGL Engineering saw its then CEO Russell Waugh step down in October.

At the time Leupen explained
that “in order to protect the best interested of UGL’s clients and key
stakeholders we have mutually agreed that the most appropriate outcome is for
Russell to step down in order to privately defend the allegations being made
against him”.
