Consultant DBK has appointed Clive Woodford as operations director for its new office in Bristol.

Woodford was previously Ridge’s managing partner at its Bristol office and is currently chair of the Forum for the Built Environment Great Western Branch.

DBK was acquired by £567m-turnover Oxfordshire-based RPS Group for £13m in April this year as part of its expansion strategy.

The new office will be shared with RPS’s planning and environmental consultancy team Aztec West.

Duncan Berry, director at DBK said: “Clive joins DBK at an exciting time both in terms of its pipeline of work and the potential of the marketplace. 

“Clive brings with him a wealth of experience in managing and delivering high profile projects, a successful track record in effective team management and a passion for the project and cost management profession itself.  We are delighted to welcome him on board.”

Earlier this year, DBK brought in former Rider Levett Bucknall London managing partner Phil Breeden as director of its office in the capital.
