Now responsible for directing and co-ordinating offices in Stockton-on-Tees, Newcastle upon Tyne, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin, the changes to his role became effective on 1 April.
Having worked for Faithful+Gould for 24 years, George’s promotion comes as part of a wider business re-shuffle of key staff members which has been undertaken to redefine the UK business into four new regions.
"This is a period of exciting and positive change for the business and I am delighted to take up my new position which will see me continue to be based in Stockton. However, the new geographical regions now in my remit mean that I will be managing the largest geographical region in the UK, with double the turnover and staff of my previous role. This in itself is a major logistical challenge I am keen to meet.
"A major part of this position will be to further develop and support the synergies with key water and industry clients across Scotland, Ireland and the north east as well as directing and co-ordinating a wider and more diverse range of sectors, services and clients.
"Since I started with the company as a quantity surveyor in 1983, my ascent up the career ladder is testimony to the commitment of Faithful+Gould to provide a varied and exciting career path for its staff."
Further changes to Faithful+Gould’s operational regions have been announced for London and the South East, the West and Central.
Donald Lawson, Chief Operating Officer for the UK, said, "The new arrangement of regions is a very positive step towards meeting our aspirations of providing greater flexibility and versatility in delivering core services to our clients."
