New business development director appointed to Shaylor Group

Shaylor Group has announced the appointment of Lana Shaylor as their new business development director. Joining the company five years ago, Lana began her journey as a business development executive playing a role in the development of Shaylor Group’s presence in London and the South East.

After completing her Masters degree, Lana worked in a number of positions for Boris Johnson, Lambeth Palace and Denza International. With a background in business and politics, Lana’s career with Shaylor Group has been a progressive one, becoming the company’s London regional manager before taking on her new role.

Continuing on from Shaylor Group’s £100m turnover success in 2016, this change comes at an exciting time for the company with a number of new contracts and framework agreements recently secured. Responsible for the company’s business development and proposals team, Lana is being supported in her role by head of frameworks Ken Rawe and head of business generation and CIOB Trustee Richard Sapcote. Leading this respected team, Lana will oversee key account management, frameworks and bid management for the company.

Lana’s appointment marks a new step for the business and sees her join a list of only seven women working as executive directors in top tier UK construction firms.
