James, who has extensive experience in the south west commercial property markets, has joined RPS from Mott Macdonald, where he led the company’s Bristol team.
Specialising in project and commercial management, James has 10 years of experience in the industry and has built up a strong reputation and portfolio of projects in the region.
James said: "Bristol and the wider south west region continue to see investment and development across all facets of the real estate industry, providing a host of opportunities to engage with projects at different stages of the property cycle.
Through its acquisition of DBK, RPS has enhanced its position as the go-to firm for project and commercial management in the country and this is the perfect time to ensure a strong presence in the region. We are very fortunate to be able to draw on RPS’ vast experience in the commercial sector, which will be crucial in creating a client-focussed approach."
Tim Downing, Managing Director, RPS, said: "We are constantly looking for the very best people to join our organisation and ensure that we are able to deliver top-tier services for our clients. James joins us with a significant level of experience in this market and I am looking forward to seeing him drive forward our presence in the south west region."
