LSH makes senior hire
Richard Shepherd has joined the property consultant’s planning, regeneration, and infrastructure team as a director.
Lambert Smith Hampton has expanded its Manchester team with the senior appointment of Richard Shepherd, taking the city office’s headcount to 45.
Shepherd joins LSH from Nexus, where he held a director position for more than six years having joined in 2017.
Before moving to Nexus, Shepherd was also a director at WYG planning and has vast experience in advising both public and private sector clients on retail, leisure, and commercial developments.
In his new role as planning and regeneration director at LSH, Shepherd will be part of the firm’s national town centre and economic regeneration team, led by Steve Norris.
Shepherd stated that he will focus on growing the company’s service offering across the North and wider UK, as well as strengthening existing client relationships.
Steve Norris, executive director and national head of LSH’s planning, regeneration, and infrastructure team, said: “These are challenging times for the UK’s high streets and town centres, but we are beginning to see local authorities and the private sector working together to take decisive action.
“This means growing demand for planning and regeneration-led consultancy services across the country, and the addition of Richard to our UK-wide team offering gives us additional strength in depth and detailed regional knowledge in a key strategic area”.
Paul Shuker, director at LSH, added: “Richard’s arrival at LSH further strengthens our team’s experience in the North and builds on our fantastic reputation of providing specialist planning and regeneration advice across sectors.
“It underpins our ability to provide robust and reliable solutions to our clients in an ever-changing built environment sector”.
