Accio Consult & Construct was formed in 2015 by Richard Rust and Stephen Casey to cement a working partnership that had evolved over ten years.
Richard has extensive experience in the Commercial Retail Sector as Senior Development Manager at Tesco from 1997 to 2007 and then as head of Construction and Delivery at Sainsbury’s from 2007 – 2014 controlling all aspects of property and an annual spend of circa £1bn. He also lead a team of over sixty colleagues in programme and project management with the accountability of planning, programming, delivering & handing over investment projects to retail / facilities maintenance to time, cost, latest specification and safe for customers and colleagues on a varied range of projects from roll-outs, new stores (including convenience) extensions, refurbishment, initiatives, logistics, office developments and mixed use development.
Stephen started Accio Group in 2001 following a successful Army career spanning 19 years as a Paratrooper and then as Managing Director of Accio Group. Accio Group rose to become the UK’s top service delivery company of temporary and demountable buildings and site support services winning Barclays Small Business of the Year 2014.
Following a reorganisation in May 2015, Accio Consult & Construct took ownership of Accio Group and operates both under Accio Consult & Construct Ltd.
