His brief is to grow the firm’s workload sin London and the South-east and will lead its commercial office and end-user fit-out business in the region.

Barton said: “In spite of challenging economic conditions and viability concerns, London and the broader European and global market continues to provide growth opportunities for our business.”

Breeden was a director at Mace’s cost consulting arm in London. He spent more than 20 years at RLB before leaving that business to become a director at RPS.
