Meet Seamans’ new Commercial Director Adam Cummings

Seamans’ new Commercial Director says he has big plans for the company’s future.

Adam Cummings joined Seamans in November last year having previously worked as Operations Director for a large Ipswich construction firm.

Adam will play a key role in the company’s future business development, particularly in its commercial endeavours.

He said since joining the company, the expertise among Seamans’ staff has really impressed him.

“Seamans is a well-established business with a very good reputation,” he said.

“Being a company with its own tradespeople is a huge selling point for the business in the current market, where the quality of the supply chain is decreasing.

“To have that level of expertise among its tradespeople as a selling point is great to have.”

Adam first dipped his toes in the construction sector as a teenager.

He said: “My first taste of construction was doing summers roofing to get a few quid in the back pocket during school holidays – that was my first experience of construction sites.

“My dad was a surveyor, although he was more on the civil side – roads, bridges etc, so I have taken a slightly different route through the industry.”

After joining a construction company in Ipswich after college, Adam worked his way through the industry from Trainee Quantity Surveyor to eventually become a Commercial Director and then Operations Director.

Adam will play an integral role in Seamans’ development and will work closely with pre-construction director Mark Reason on which tenders to bid for and the long-term strategy of the business while overseeing the commerciality of the live projects.

“At Seamans, we have an excellent opportunity to move forward with housing, schools and hospitals while also building on our already strong reputation in heritage restoration and domestic work,” he said.

“It is a very exciting time for Seamans. There are huge opportunities going forward with the company.

“In an industry where quality is waning and partnered approaches are becoming a rarity, we aim to redress the balance in both areas.”
