Barry McNicholas Barry McNicholas joined Kier in the summer of 2017 when Kier paid a reported £18m to take over McNicholas Construction, the family utilities contracting business founded in 1949. McNicholas Construction became Kier Utilities, with Barry McNicholas as managing director. Now aged 59, he has decided to leave at the end of December 2021 to pursue non-executive opportunities. Barry McNicholas became a director McNicholas Construction in 2005 and was chief executive when the family agreed to cash in and accept Kier’s offer. It was the back-end of Kier’s takeover drive that nearly saw it come undone, paying £221m for May Gurney and £340m for Mouchel.
