Cubby appoints chief operating officer

The Carlisle-based multi-disciplinary contractor has recruited former Coleman Group managing director James Howard.

Howard has more than 30 years of experience in helping businesses grow, including 16 years in the construction industry.

Prior to joining Cubby Construction, Howard was the managing director at business consultancy Red Orchid. Before then, he was the managing director for The Coleman Group, a position he resigned from in December 2019.

At Cubby, Howard will be tasked with running the day-to-day operations of the company and lead on strategy implementation.

Howard expressed his excitement about his new role.

“I’m delighted to be joining an organisation with a strong heritage, excellent brand integrity, and core values that reflect my own,” he said.

“It’s an exciting time and I look forward to working with colleagues and stakeholders to deliver our ambitious change agenda and some great projects.

Cubby managing director Tommy Cubby praised Howard’s hire.

“James joining us as COO is another excellent new appointment,” he said.

“I’m excited to see the newly strengthened leadership team working together to deliver on our core value of making vision a reality by constructing great projects.”

Cubby offers clients services in construction, civil engineering, joinery manufacture and homebuilding. Recent projects for the firm include the RIBA North West award-winning Fratry at Carlisle Cathedral, the Castles and Coasts head office in Carlisle, and the refurbishment of the Trimontium Museum in Scotland.
