Chief Information Officer joins Growing Caddick Business

The Caddick Group has appointed Simon Coulson as Chief Information Officer, a new role that signals a step-change in operational systems as the Group continues to expand across Yorkshire, the North East, North West and the Midlands.

Simon’s position will see him design and oversee information and computing across both Caddick Construction Group and Caddick Developments, ensuring that systems are smooth, operationally effective and future-proofed for growth.

The new role is the latest in a line of senior appointments for Caddick to ensure its sustainable growth is managed meticulously in terms of IT systems, sustainability, commercial performance and supply chain management.

Simon joins Caddick after 20 years as an IT consultant working on a number of high-profile projects for the construction and financial sectors. His remit will see Simon scrutinise IT and CRM systems to ensure they perform in-line with business and client needs.

Simon commented: “As a business grows, it evolves. To make sure this change is smooth, all IT systems need to adapt with expansion. At the same time, systems need to be forward-looking and joined up; in the case of Caddick, the Group operates across multiple regions with Caddick Construction also delivering some of Caddick Developments’ project pipeline. Ensuring teams in different locations and different disciplines have a consistent experience with a highly functional IT system is fundamental to their success.”

Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction Group Managing Director, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Simon to the Caddick team. In our pursuit of sustainable growth, it’s important we attract the best talent to our business. Before we grow, we need to ensure all of our business functions are fit for purpose. This means questioning how we do things, and ensuring that we’re giving our people and clients the very best tools to succeed. Embracing technology in construction is becoming increasingly important, particularly with the use of AI, and it's business critical that we keep pace with this change, for the future success of our business.”
