Ross Taylor has been appointed as the new CEO and managing director of UGL.

He will officially step in to the role on the 24th of November, replacing current CEO Richard Leupen.

Prior to joining UGL Taylor was the group CEO at Tenix, and was formerly the group COO at Lend Lease.

He will be brought on with a salary of approximately $1.5 million.

It comes after UGL split its business in to two streams, an engineering, construction and maintenance business and a property services business in August last year.

Following that UGL Engineering saw its then CEO Russell Waugh step down in October.

At the time Leupen explained that "in order to protect the best interested of UGL's clients and key stakeholders we have mutually agreed that the most appropriate outcome is for Russell to step down in order to privately defend the allegations being made against him".
