Paul Candelent has joined the property and infrastructure business in a newly created role as a regional director in the northern arm of its design and management division.
Candelent joined the company after 14 years with Davis Langdon, an AECOM subsidiary, where he was a director in the Manchester office.
He has worked with some of the region's biggest public and private sector organisations including the University of Manchester, Manchester City Council, Paradise Street Development Agency, KPMG and the Manchester Airport Group.
Candelent will work with director Andy Rockett to lead the growth of Capita's management business in the North, which comprises offices in Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds. He will be based primarily in Manchester.
Capita's management business focuses primarily on project management and cost management services across the core sectors of commercial, education, residential and hotels.
Candelent said: "It's great to be joining Capita at this point in its development in the North. I'm looking forward to working with the team and building on the impressive client base and reputation which Capita has in the region. Long term relationships with clients such as Muse, the University of Manchester and the BBC provide a great platform for growth."
