Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) has announced the appointment of two new directors to its Global Board.
Andrew Reynolds and Russell Lloyd will both represent the UK practice, joining existing global board director Ann Bentley. They replace former global board members Lance Taylor, who left the firm to join Persimmon last month, and Mark Williamson, who has transferred to the Caribbean to set up a new RLB office in St Lucia.
Andrew is one of the main board directors at RLB, responsible for delivering built asset solutions to major corporate occupiers, specialising in programme management, project controls, commercial and risk management. He also leads the RLB Euro Alliance, a network of over 30 partner organisations in Europe.
Andrew said, ‘I am delighted to be taking up this role, in which I will ensure that we continue to strive forwards and work to deliver our 2020 strategy to grow the business and support our customers both in the UK and overseas.’
He added, ‘This will also help link our European partners with the global practice so that we can deliver more multi-national programs and further integrate our international service offering. We have already made progress in this area providing services for international clients including for DSGi and Tesco among others.’
Russell is a partner in the London office and leads the firm’s sport and event work. Current clients include Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, FC Barcelona and the Baku 2015 European Games.
Russell said, ‘Sport is one of our key sectors and something that is truly global. We work with clubs, organising committees and bid cities around the world delivering sporting events, stadiums and arenas, and ensure that a legacy is created in country.’
He added, ‘I’m excited to be taking on this new role and working even closer with our global partners to deliver these projects and ensure that we are strategically positioned to win more work in this sector.’
