This month’s career moves includes new appointments at Pascall + Watson and WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff

Steve West

Transport specialist Pascall + Watson has appointed Steve West to replace outgoing managing director Phil Holden. Holden, who retires at the end of April, spent 13 years at the helm, during which time the practice moved up from 43rd in the AJ100 rankings in 2002 to a peak of 12th in 2013.  West, who joined the firm in 1992, has led design teams on major UK infrastructure projects, including the £4.3 billion Heathrow Terminal 5.

Stride Treglown has promoted Penny Burgess to its board of directors in the role of finance director. Burgess joined the practice in 2010 and has been responsible for audits, controlling budgets and general financial and cash management. She also recently introduced employee ownership at Stride Treglown.

Long-established Oxfordshire partnership of architects, town planners and urban designers West Waddy ADP has appointed Alex Pratt as its non-executive chairman. West Waddy said the appointment would ‘give strategic guidance to the partnership at a time of considerable growth and opportunity, particularly within the housing and transport sectors’.

Recently merged consulting giant WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff have announced that Mark Naysmith is to be the UK chief operating officer of the combined company, which now employs 32,000 people globally and 5,150 in the UK.
