CONSTRUCTION firm Amiri has appointed a new director from its management team.

Its construction manager, Neil Cole, joins the Fareham firm’s founders, Grahame Pettit and Kevin Lendon, on the board.

Neil, 39, who is from Chichester, joined the company soon after its launch in 2005, having previously worked with its founders Benson Construction in Botley.

Mr Lendon said Neil had played a ‘pivotal role’ in the growth of the business.
