In the first week of the year, we welcomed Ben Marshall to the Yorkshire Pro Paving & Groundworks Team as our Senior Quantity Surveyor.
In this role, Ben is responsible for the financial management of commercial projects, as well as subcontractor packages. With over 18 years’ experience as a QS, Ben has worked for a range of construction firms in that time – from local businesses to global brands. He is looking forward to bringing this depth of experience to his role at YPP.
The building trade has always been a part of Ben’s life; his father worked in construction and, following a spell as a plasterer, Ben decided to follow in his footsteps.
Ben studied at Askham Bryan College, and Leeds Metropolitan University to gain his professional industry qualifications. This laid the foundations for a successful career, which he is excited to continue at YPP.
Outside work, Ben is married with three children – a twelve-year-old boy, and two girls aged eight and six. He’s a keen property developer and recently undertook a renovation project on a farmhouse in Otley; this latest development is set to become the family home!
A keen sportsman, Ben used to play rugby, but now enjoys coaching his son’s football team in his spare time. He is a staunch Leeds United supporter, so he’s in good company with the team at YPP!
We are delighted to have Ben on the team and are pleased to be working with him. Welcome aboard Ben!
