Consultant strengthens its regeneration business in the North

Consultant EC Harris has expanded its regeneration team with four new appointments.

Tom Dobrashian will head up the group in the North of England, Stuart Downs will lead the delivery of major projects and Sarah Whittington and Tim McDonald have been appointed as senior regeneration consultants.

Dobrashian will be responsible for delivering regeneration schemes that benefit local communities for both the public and private sector in the North and Scotland. He previously worked as commercial director for Elevate East Lancashire, a government housing market renewal pathfinder.

Downs joins the firm from consultant Gleeson, where he was a development manager on some major housing regeneration schemes in Manchester.

Whittington has 12 years experience in developing, delivering and managing regeneration schemes across the Midlands and the North.

Previously at the regional development agency Yorkshire Forward, McDonald has a wide range of experience in both development and infrastructure projects.

They will all be based at EC Harris’ Leeds office.
