Executive Chair of North Midland Construction Group receives civil engineering accolade

The Institution of Civil Engineers’ East Midlands, William Kemp Award was awarded to Robert Moyle, Executive Chairman of the North Midland Construction Group.

Robert, who is a Fellow of the Institution, has made a sustained contribution to the profession in the region for over 40 years, working for the same organisation throughout and having been a driving force behind its success.

Few of us can trace through our CV a continuous line from being a graduate within a company and staying with it to the dizzy heights of Executive Chairman of a major national business. One cannot achieve that level of success in our business over a sustained period without being an exceptional engineer and business leader.

Robert Moyle has been a member of the board of North Midland Construction since 1984. He was appointed Chief Executive in 1990 and in 1999 took over the reins of Chairman and Chief Executive.

North Midland Construction became a PLC in 1982 and now operates nationally through 12 regional offices. As Executive Chairman, Robert is at the helm of a company that values its people and has invested in its own Academy to help people achieve their potential.

ICE East Midlands appreciates the support that Robert provides in our work to influence decision makers in the region, and the support that his company provides in putting forward the work of their teams, very often more than one in each category, for the EMMAs annually. ICE East Midlands are sure that this celebration of the success of his teams has been at the heart of Robert's success as an engineer, a business man and an inspirational leader. He is more than worthy of receiving this year's William Kemp Award.

On receiving the award, Robert said:

"I'm extremely honoured, extremely surprised and utterly delighted to receive the award."

"I'm absolutely committed and passionate about encouraging young people to come in to the civil engineering profession. It's a great profession to be in and it's done me proud over many, many years."
