GVA Grimley has promoted eight members of its planning, development and regeneration team at its Manchester office in Fountain Street.
Rachel ter Horst, Nicola Rigby, Oliver Maury and Anthony Pollard have been promoted to associate level, while Matt Spilsbury and Gavin Amos have become senior consultants, and Chris Watts has been promoted to planner and Steve Grimster to senior planner.
Gerry Hughes, executive director in planning, development and regeneration at GVA Grimley, said: "The team has performed exceptionally well over the last two years and indeed expanded through challenging economic conditions.
"These promotions are recognition of the achievements of a number of key team members who have contributed to that success.
"We plan to continue to grow and expand the team in our core planning business areas for both the public and private sectors. However in addition to investment in these core skills, we are investing in new skills to expand the services we can offer our clients.
"The most recent example of this was our investment in economic and social policy skills. We now have a team that not only advises on all aspects of the planning process, on strategy and policy, but a team that is focused on ensuring practical delivery advice to our clients. We are now leading advisers on public sector joint venture structures, ensuring the most effective use of assets to attract private investment to enable ongoing service delivery, new development and urban regeneration."
