Gavin Taylor

Managing Director, Construction Services.

Gavin joined Sunbird in July 2016 as the head of Construction Services and is responsible for leading integration of our two operating companies, TFA and K2.

Having worked both in America, Europe, Middle East and throughout Africa, Gavin brings global expertise to various local markets. He started his career on site, and previously served as Chief Operating Officer at Murray & Roberts, one of South Africa’s largest contractors, covering the entire African region, from May 2012 to June 2016. Gavin moved into a group/company general management role at Vinci in London in 2006 as Regional Director of the London and South East buildings division. This was later merged into a larger entity after the acquisition of Taylor Woodrow, where he was made Managing Director of the building division.

Gavin is passionate about the potential in the African market, and is a leader in project acquisition, contract negotiation, people management, procurement, construction planning and implementation and logistics within the construction industry.

"The region has huge potential and I want to impart my knowledge and expertise to a new generation of African constructors and entrepreneurs to enable the delivery of exemplar projects.”
