Crossfield hires from Wates and Wilmott Dixon

Liverpool-based contractor and developer has hired Tom Dillon from Wates as commercial manager, while Stuart Belfield has joined as operations manager from Willmott Dixon.

Dillon, who spent around 15 years at Wates, joins to head up Crossfield’s commercial operations across its construction, development, and housing arms, while Belfield has become operations manager with Crossfield’s housing business, Crossfield Living.

Founded by David Cain and John Cassidy in 2012, the group now has 50 staff, and has hired senior staff from Kier, Pochin’s, and Vinci as well as Wates and Willmott Dixon.

The Speke-based business is currently building 130 apartments in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle and has partnered with affordable housing provider Onward Homes to build 65 properties in the North West.

David Cain said: “I worked with Tom for the best part of eight years and personally learned a huge amount from him.  Because of that, it’s particularly good to be able to welcome him to the Crossfield team as I know just how much experience he has to share and what he will bring to our commercial activities across the group.

David Dobson, Crossfield Living director added: “Stuart brings with him a wealth of experience from a major player in construction so attracting him to join Crossfield Living is a real coup for us.  Our living division has enjoyed a very successful year and we have a strong pipeline ahead of us, so further strengthening our team with Stuart’s appointment is important for us in continuing this success.”
