Leading construction and property consultant, Thomas & Adamson (T&A), has appointed Gillian Kirkness as Regional Director to support the company’s ambitious growth plans.
Kirkness brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, having previously held roles of Equity Director at Doig & Smith and Project Director at Axiom Project Services Limited, in a career spanning over 25 years. She joins the business following a two-year sabbatical pursuing a passion project in gelato making in Bologna.
In her new role, she will lead projects across T&A’s portfolio of public and private sector clients, creating new opportunities and helping to develop the company’s growing cost management team.
Brian Donaldson, Partner at Thomas & Adamson, said: “Gill brings a wealth of knowledge, energy and leadership and is a key addition in strengthening and growing our cost management division. Very rarely do we make senior appointments outside of the business, however her track record and experience mitigating risk will be of great value as we continue to deliver major projects across the UK and UAE.”
Gillian is a Director and Trustee of Ronald McDonald House in Glasgow, who give parents and care givers a free ‘home from home’ to stay while their seriously ill child is in hospital. She will continue to take an active role in the day to day running and fundraising of the Scottish charity.
Gillian Kirkness added: “T&A has seen fantastic success in recent years. I look forward to building on this growth and ultimately establishing the firm as one of the market leaders in cost management in the UK.”
