JPG are delighted to announce two senior appointments as part of our succession planning.
Robert Redmond joins JPG as a Director responsible for heading up the Infrastructures team. Returning to the company after taking a sabbatical, Robert has previously worked for a number of local and international consultancies and specialises in highways, drainage and infrastructure design. With considerable experience across residential, industrial and commercial projects, Robert is committed to achieving client objectives, both practical and commercial and leading the team to deliver optimum engineering solutions.
Owen Lokuciejewski-Taylor has been promoted to Associate Director and will lead the new Strategic Land team at JPG. With considerable expertise in geological sciences and remediation of the UK’s coal mining legacy, Owen has been identified as a rising star within the company with great potential for leadership and strategic support to clients.
Owen is already leading the integration of the latest BIM software across the company into the Strategic Land team and provides a valued high level, early stage assessment of sites to identify commercial and sustainable development options.
Both Robert and Owen join a strong management team, supporting directors David Allwood and Matthew Potter who continue to assume more responsibility for the strategic direction of the business and overall client servicing. Chris Harding continues to run the business operationally as Managing Director.
Chris Harding said “We are delighted to bolster the management team at JPG with Robert’s return and a much-deserved fast track promotion for Owen. Alongside David and Matthew, we now have a very strong leadership team in place to continue our long legacy and remain a valued, long term strategic partner for our clients”.
JPG continues to enjoy strong growth and now employs 50 people within its Leeds headquarters. Alongside our Infrastructure and Structures teams, we have recently introduced new propositions in Strategic Land Engineering, Geospatial Analysis and BIM services.
Recent instructions include the new 232,190 sq ft facility for Croda at Goole 36 and, at Skelton Gate in Leeds, a 170-acre joint venture development between Evans Property Group and Keyland Developments.
