Mace has appointed Richard Dinsdale as operations director and Mark Holmes as associate director in its Manchester office, both of whom previously worked for Carillion.
Dinsdale joins having worked as director and place lead for Carillion’s regional and communities business since 2013 until earlier this year, and has previously worked for both Capita and Urban Vision.
Holmes spent six years with Carillion as a senior programme manager working on public estates and neighbourhood asset reviews for the Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
Both Holmes and Dinsdale will work from Mace’s Manchester office and will cover large-scale regeneration and infrastructure projects.
Projects Mace has delivered so far in the North West include the delivery of transport interchanges in Altrincham and Bolton, while the company is also acting as project manager for the £330m refurbishment of Manchester Town Hall.
In infrastructure it has also delivered a study developing plans for the Trans-Pennine Tunnel for Highways England.
Lisa Bowden, head of infrastructure in the North for Mace, said: “Mark and Richard’s appointments are a game changer for Mace as we bring together the combined expertise of our property and infrastructure teams to developments.
“This is in recognition that transforming cities is not just about improving transport connectivity, but also taking a holistic approach with a focus on social infrastructure; such as high-quality housing, business premises, public services and assets, all supported by excellent digital infrastructure.”
