Senior Management Changes

The spring has seen the Camerons Board being updated with the return of Marc Burton as Managing Director, Olivier Champetier as Construction Director and the business welcoming Gary McGuire into the new role of Pre-Construction Director.

Marc joined Camerons in 2000 and was previously Managing Director from 2007-2016 and has remained as Chairman of Camerons since becoming an Executive Director at Camerons parent company, Garenne in 2016. Marc will continue in his role at Garenne which includes non-executive positions with AFM, Granite Le Pelley Jersey and Rabey’s. Marc was the Project Director for the design and Construction of the 180 bed Jersey Nightingale Hospital and was awarded an MBE for services to the community during the pandemic in recognition of his role on this project. Marc is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building and a Member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and was the winner of the 2021 CIOB Construction Manager of Year award for his role on the Jersey Nightingale. Marc plays an active role in the Jersey community as a Governor at Highlands College, Vice Chairperson of the Jersey Cheshire Home and Vice Chairperson of the Jersey Construction Council. For the past 4 years Marc has introduced the Design, Engineer, Construct ! (DEC!) STEM based learning programme into Jersey which sees Camerons acting as the School and Industry Adopter with Les Rocquier School and Garenne with Highlands College. 

Olivier returns for his third spell at Camerons, working firstly with Marc back in 2000 on the Albert Pier project, a joint venture between Camerons and Spie Batignolles, secondly as Construction Director from 2015-2020 before returning to France during the pandemic. We are very pleased to welcome Oliver back into the team bringing a wealth of experience, knowledge and understanding of the local market and our client’s and supply chain. 

Gary was previously part of the J3 team working for Garenne joint venture partner Sir Robert McAlpine’s, which saw J3 successfully secure the Future Hospital contract, tender for the Our Hospital project and Gary was a key part of the delivery team with Marc on the Jersey Nightingale project. Gary has lived in Jersey since 2018 and has a wealth of pre and post contract construction experience and knowledge and understanding of the local market. The new role of Pre-Construction Director is particularly important to Camerons as we work with Client’s earlier in the pre-construction phases to ensure risk, methodology and design considerations are factored in to ensure best value for our clients.

In addition Martin Holmes continues in his role as a Non-Executive Director of the business having previously being the Managing Director from 2001-2007 before joining Garenne in a wider capacity. 

Marc commented “I’m delighted and excited to return to role of MD at Camerons where I have always remained active and in close contact with clients and the Camerons team. I’m really looking forward to working with everyone as we look to continue to deliver high quality projects and work with our clients on some very exciting opportunities”.
