Consulting engineer Patrick Parsons has appointed a new director to its Manchester office.
Hossein Beheshty has worked for a number of big consultancies prior to joining the firm, including WYG where he spent the last two years as UK head of building services engineering. Prior to that he had spells with Halcrow Yolles and Buro Happold.
He said: “I joined Patrick Parsons because of the company’s strong ambition to expand while at the same time providing quality service to their clients. The decision to join the firm was made all the easier with the offering of exciting current and future projects, together with opportunities that would arise from sitting within the Parsons Group.”
Doug Tidswell, director of Patrick Parsons, said: “We have no doubt that Hossein’s wealth of commercial acumen and extensive links within the industry will facilitate Patrick Parsons’ growth not only in the North West but also across the West Midlands and the South. We are thrilled to welcome him to the team.”
The multidisciplinary firm has eight UK and two international offices. In June, it acquired Manchester firm BCM, taking its headcount in the city from four to 16.
