Former Dragons chief executive Stuart Davies has joined the management team of a South Wales-based construction firm.

Mr Davies has joined Llanelli-based Morganstone as business development director.

Along with his leadership skills from the rugby world, he will bring his significant experience as a former development director at Gwalia, which is part of the Pobl Group. His role will be to strengthen and enhance the company's existing client relationships and to maximise further opportunities.

Mr Davies said: “Since my initial meeting with Ian I have genuinely tracked the growth and success of the company. ‘Where next’ was an important decision for me to make and I was impressed by Ian’s vision and values and to hear how much weight is attached to the delivery of quality projects. I am excited to be joining one of the biggest success stories in the area. Morganstone is experiencing a time of growth and I am looking forward to being part of its next chapter and future success”.

Ian Morgan, managing director, Morganstone, said: “It is a great accolade to have someone of Stuart's reputation joining our management team.

"He brings with him an abundance of knowledge and experience having previously headed up the development department at Gwalia. His experience working with local authorities as well as a sporting career at the highest level confirms his leadership and management skills and we are very much looking forward to working with Stuart and strengthening the management team.”
