Willmott Dixon Group

Willmott Dixon is a construction, housing and property group with a wide range of public and private sector customers. Faced with slowing public spending and a tough construction market, the Hertfordshire company has protected its position by winning more private sector clients. Under group chief executive Rick Willmott, the fifth generation to run the 160-year-old company, Willmott Dixon achieved sales of £1.1 billion in 2010.
