Phil Jones, a key figure in the delivery of Peel L&P’s £5bn waterfront regeneration, is leaving the company to link up with Darran Lawless at Placefirst.
Now, Jones is to become the second senior member of Peel’s Liverpool Waters team to leave for Placefirst this year.
He is due to take up his new role as project manager in December.
Jones joined Peel as project manager from Turner & Townsend in June 2018.
In December 2020, he was promoted to senior project manager by Lawless, a role that saw him head up the Liverpool Waters project.
Jones will be replaced by Chris Foran, who joined Peel as senior project manager at Wirral Waters in September.
Both Peel and Placefirst confirmed Jones’ departure but declined to comment further when contacted by Place North West.
