Leadership

Declan McGeeney

Director, Infrastructure and Specialist Trading, UK

Declan McGeeney
Declan is a proven leader with 20 years’ experience within the construction industry, and as an integral part of Laing O’Rourke’s Europe Hub Executive team he is responsible for some of the company’s most high profile projects in the power, rail and water sectors.

Since joining the Group in 2000 he has worked on a number of complex civil engineering projects, ranging from residential and commercial schemes in the centre of London and across the UK, to large scale infrastructure in Asia.

From 2012-2014 he led the business in Hong Kong, delivering three of the province’s largest public transport infrastructure projects for the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) extension, as well as MTR’s first and only external maintenance partnership, managing service provision on the Tseung Kwan O line. On his return to the UK, Declan grew the Expanded business – which incorporates concrete, geotechnical and stone cladding capabilities – and oversaw a number of projects with Network Rail interfaces, including Southbank Place.

A firm believer in the development of talent and succession planning, he creates strong teams to deliver on safety, programme and quality, and values open and honest communication with both clients and teams throughout the lifecycle of projects.

To support Laing O’Rourke’s Deliver 2025 strategy, he is driving performance and collaboration, ensuring innovation and excellence is embedded across all parts of the business.
