Tom entered the Construction Industry in 2006 via a government-backed business apprenticeship scheme, creating geotechnical engineering solutions & high security steel fabrications for large infrastructure projects in the water, aviation, highways and defence sectors. He fell in love with the diversity of the industry and quickly developed a strong appreciation for the people who work within it.

Ross has enjoyed immense success in his chosen field and quickly became recognised as one of the ‘go to guys’ within his sector. In May 2017, he partnered with two of the Construction Recruitment Industry’s leading talents to form Unite People Limited.

Colm McGinley

Investor & Director

Before establishing McGinley Group (MG) in 2010, Colm qualified as a chartered surveyor (MRICS). Colm set out to build a business with two core goals in mind; to exceed client expectations at all times and to ensure MG would be a great place to work with and for. In December 2015, MHR was recognised in the Sunday Times ‘Fast Track 100’ as one of the fastest growing companies in the UK - a true testament to service levels and hard work. This was then followed up in February 2017, when the business was awarded a place on the coveted Sunday Times Top 100 rankings of ‘Best Companies to Work For in the UK’.

Colm is a founder and board member across a number of businesses covering multiple market sectors along with being a member of the Young Presidents Organisation (YPO). YPO is the largest global business network of CEO's and business owners with 22,000 members worldwide.

Away from the office, Colm can be found either on the golf course (if it’s not raining) or with his wife and three kids (all currently under six years old)!
