Nottingham architects CPMG have promoted four of their senior members of staff to group director to support the future growth of the business following the recent Management Buy Out.

Hugh Avison, Anil Parmar, Chris White and Paul Bodill, who have a wealth of experience built up over a number of years across all areas of the business, have been promoted in recognition of their contribution to the firm and for the role they will be playing in developing the business going forward.

Hugh Avison joined CPMG in October 2000 after graduating from the University of Nottingham .  He specialises in designing for the education sector, completing a number of school, college and university projects and is currently involved in three new academies. Chris White has been with the firm for nine years and has played a key role on commercial projects and in expanding CPMG’s work on air traffic control towers, helping the firm complete more than any other architectural practice in the UK.

Anil Parmar joined the practice in 1998 after several years working in the region and his portfolio includes a number of healthcare and industrial projects. He is currently involved with the new Quayside Pavilion for HMS Belfast in London.

Paul Bodill has been with CPMG for eight years and has worked on a variety of projects including offices for the MoD and Primary Care facilities in Aston, St Anns and Bulwell.

CPMG employs 56 people and provides quality architecture, interior design, space planning and master planning services for clients across the UK. The firm services a variety of industries including the education, commercial, industrial, healthcare, residential, hotels and leisure, transportation and retail sectors and has earned a national reputation for its innovative work.

CPMG managing director David Glazebrook said: “It’s a very exciting time as we undergo a period of change and these four new group directors are the next tier of management who will help drive the company forward and build on our success. They have all earned their stripes at the practice working on a number of important projects and we’re delighted to reward their contribution with these promotions. As we look to expand our portfolio into new sectors, this next generation will be integral to driving new ideas and innovation to ensure CPMG remains competitive during the current challenging period in the economy.”
