Employee profile

Katy Dowding

Adam McDonald, Commercial Director

Adam joined Skanska in 2002 as a graduate, having completed a four-year sandwich degree in commercial management and quantity surveying.

He started his career as a graduate quantity surveyor, but was soon nominated to apply for Skanska’s global future leadership programme, Skanska Stretch. 

He successfully secured a place on the programme and undertook various roles within the UK, completing a number of formal training modules. He then began the second phase of the programme, international placements – most recently with the Skanska USA preconstruction team based in New York.

Since returning from Skanska USA he has joined Skanska Rashleigh Weatherfoil Engineering Services (SRWES) as Commercial Director, responsible for the overall commercial team.

“My career has taken many routes at Skanska, but I have always received the support I require. The key to a successful career is being open to new challenges and pursuing your goals with a passion for learning.

“I love my job at Skanska. The people create a great environment to work in and really are the foundation of the business. Having travelled to many countries with Skanska, I can see that everyone shares the same values.”
