Roger Seshan has left his role as group asset optimisation and supply chain director at construction firm Laing O'Rourke to pursue other opportunities.

Seshan, who held the position for just over a year, has now left the company following the conclusion of a handover period. Originally trained as a corporate lawyer, he is leaving to pursue project development opportunities in the power sector, where he has significant previous experience.

A statement from the company said: “Roger has driven forward our extensive optimisation agenda delivering improved common principles and approaches in several areas including policy deployment, intellectual property management and supply chain management.

“Asset and supply chain optimisation remain fundamental to our strategy and we will now identify a successor to drive forward the platform developed by Roger and the wider team.”

Prior to his move into the construction sector, he was strategic planning director at NuGeneration, following three years as commercial development director at Scottish Power. Laing O'Rourke will now look for a successor to Seshan.
