Leading independent property, construction and infrastructure consultancy Pick Everard has made two senior promotions with both Adrian Ceney and David Harris being promoted to partner.
David originally joined Pick Everard in Leicester in 2008 as a chartered senior building surveyor and has since progressed through the ranks, being promoted to national director three years ago before making the step to partner this year. David has developed services with a range of high-profile national clients including National Grid, Cadent Gas, the BBC and EDF Energy.
Adrian will also make the step up to the partnership following a three-year stint as national director responsible for project management across the firm. During this time, Adrian has overseen significant growth of the PM division, with Pick Everard now one of the UK’s top 20 project management firms. Adrian has helped develop a number of key client accounts, including supporting the firm’s work with Scape Group.
Speaking of his promotion, David said: “I am very pleased to have been promoted into the partnership at Pick Everard following a number of years as part of the senior team and am looking forward to continuing to shape the firm’s growth.
“In recent years, Pick Everard has gone from strength to strength and I am delighted to have been a part of that; our team is incredibly talented, hard-working and committed to delivering an exceptional service to our clients. It’s an exciting time to be part of the business and I am thrilled to be taking on this new role.”
Adrian is responsible for strategic direction, governance and performance of the project management division at Pick Everard and says he is looking forward to driving this area of the business further moving forward.
He said: “We have had real success within the project management team in recent years and I am excited about what the future holds; I am very proud to be a part of it. It goes without saying that I am delighted to have been promoted to partner and am looking forward to the new challenge. We have a great team.
“We have ambitious plans for growth across our range of services and our geographical reach, and I am looking forward to being a part of that in my new role.”
The promotions play a key role in the firm’s 2020 vision to be the first-choice property, construction and infrastructure consultancy.
Duncan Green, managing partner at Pick Everard, added: “David and Adrian are both real assets to our team and I am very pleased to congratulate them both on their promotions to partner and wish them every success in their new roles.
“Their promotions are testament to their hard work in supporting and building the business; I know that they will continue to play an integral role in shaping the future for Pick Everard in the coming months and years.”
