Engineering and environmental consultant Gifford has appointed two of its senior directors to the company’s main board.
The appointments reflect a stronger direction from the company’s operational management towards the market sectors served by Gifford.
Peter Curran has more than 25 years’ experience with Gifford and has built an international reputation in the design and delivery of infrastructure projects, in particular major bridges and landmark structures.
“We have been developing our internal structure so that it more closely reflects the markets in which we operate.”
Gordon Clark, Gifford
One of these is the iconic Gateshead Millennium “blinking eye” Bridge which is known throughout the world. Peter is a leading member of Gifford’s Technical Executive, well known for his papers on bridge design and cable-stayed crossings and has been an active supporter of learned societies throughout his career.
Steve Canadine is responsible for Gifford’s property sector activities with experience in masterplanning and the re-use and redevelopment of historic or brownfield sites.
He is an Academician of the Academy of Urbanism, a member of the British Urban Regeneration Association and a mentor of MBA students at the London Business School.
Gifford is an independent limited liability partnership with 51 working partners, all of whom are active across the company’s consulting disciplines. The company is directed by its main board which now comprises eight directors under the chairmanship of Gordon Clark.
Gordon Clark said: “We have been developing our internal structure so that it more closely reflects the markets in which we operate. These two new appointments to the main board strengthen our operational management team bringing us closer to our clients and markets.”
