Operations Director

Gibran Francis

Operations Director

joined AM&G in 1999 to work on some of our most iconic projects including More London, Heathrow and The Shard. He left AM&G in 2012 but returned two years later to lead the team at 21 Moorfields, a development for Land Securities in the heart of the City of London.

How did you get into what you do?
My dad was in construction and I started out working for him as a labourer in the late 1980s, labouring and driving a dumper during the school holidays. I took a greater interest in the industry after working alongside the engineers on site, and that led me to qualify as a civil engineer, and then work for the construction company who sponsored me during university.

I joined AM&G in 1999, working initially as a package manager and gradually working my way up to becoming a project director. In 2012, when The Shard was completed, I left AM&G Construction & Civil Engineering
to work for a residential property developer but returned in 2014 to lead on the 21 Moorfields project for Land Securities.

What do you enjoy most about your role at AM&G?
I like being able to spend time on site as well as in the office, and I get a great sense of achievement from seeing safe progress on site. I really enjoy working with our supply chain – some of them are great characters! The supply chain and my team have a good, collaborative culture on site that helps us all to enjoy what we do and be productive.
