Lichfields appoints senior director in Manchester
Rebecca Caines has joined the planning and development consultancy from developer Knight Dragon.
At Knight Dragon, Caines was the head of planning and led on various large-scale mixed-use schemes around the London area.
As the new senior director at Lichfields’ Manchester office, she will use her expertise in major regeneration schemes, high-density development and tall buildings to advise the firm’s developer clients.
Lichfields chief executive James Fennell said: “Our Manchester office is a very busy one and the levelling-up agenda means we are confident that will remain the case.
“Bringing Rebecca in gives us extra senior-level resources and fantastic major project experience. Her developer and investor know-how will appeal to our clients.”
This will not be Caines first time working for Lichfields. She first joined the company in 2014 from RPS, where she had been an associate planner. At Lichfields she rose in the ranks from associate director to planning director. She left the company after six years for the position with Knight Dragon.
Caines said it was a “very exciting time” to re-join the company.
“I look forward to helping the Manchester office go from strength to strength and working in a fantastic city,” she said.
Lichfields has nine offices throughout the UK, including Bristol and Leeds. Its Manchester office sits inside Ship Canal House off King Street.
