Careyjones renames and reveals new succession plan

AJ100 big hitter Carey Jones has re-branded itself and unveiled a new ‘succession plan’ after shedding almost half its board of directors two months ago

The 20-year old practice will be renamed careyjones chapmantolcher to reflect the new corporate set up with London-based Tim Tolcher and Paul Chapman, together with head of finance Andrew Wrigglesworth, who joined practice founders Gordon Carey and Chris Jones on the main board.

The move will see more than half of the equity transfer from Carey and Jones to the so-called ‘succession directors’.

Carey said: ‘Under the careyjones chapmantolcher umbrella, two separately managed subsidiaries have been created, allowing us to retain all of the strengths and benefits of the broader careyjones business whilst locally enhancing our flexible and agile response to our Clients and construction colleagues.

‘Regional management boards have been formed, comprising senior people from our respective studios -  headed by Rob Cunniff and Chris Jones in Leeds and Manchester and Tim Tolcher and Paul Chapman in London.

‘This new structure achieves the “best of both Worlds”, with Tim, Paul and Andrew becoming joint owners of the Practice and all of us working with our Teams, both Nationally and Internationally, to continue delivering exemplary projects and provide a first class service to our clients.’

In September the practice’s previous ‘succession plan’, which included managing director Gregg Mitchell (pictured) David Matthews of the interiors arm, London-based David Roden, Leeds’ Mike Harris and Manchester director Simon Clarke left the company.
