Stride Treglown has announced a number of changes to the practice’s management for 2017.
Gareth Davies, who has run the Cardiff office for 20 years, retired at the end of 2016. His place on the Board has been taken by Pierre Wassenaar, a past president of the RSAW and a board member of the RIBA. Pierre heads up Stride Treglown’s technology and innovation sector as well as leading the firm’s further and higher education work in Wales.
Looking further ahead, Kevin McDonald will be retiring as Managing Director in June 2017, after thirty-one years with the practice. Kevin spent twelve years running the Plymouth office and the last eight as managing director, overseeing growth into new sectors and acquiring offices in the Solent and, most recently, in Birmingham.
Darren Wilkins will take over as Managing Director. Darren has been with Stride Treglown for 20 years and has been leading the practice’s healthcare work including major projects such as the £160 million new Hampshire Critical Treatment Hospital.
Speaking about the changes Stride Treglown’s Chairman David Hunter said:
“Gareth and Kevin have both made immense contributions to our business over the years. We have needed to plan carefully to make sure that their very significant roles in the practice are filled and we’re delighted to have Pierre and Darren to take up the reins. 2017 will certainly be a year of change, but we look forward to any challenges the year may hold with real confidence.”
