Mark Cleverly handed partner role at new firm

The former boss of Arcadis’ commercial developers business has joined project and programme management consultant CPC Project Services.

Last month Building revealed that Arcadis had begun the hunt for a replacement after Mark Cleverly handed in his notice after 10 years at the firm.

Now Cleverly has joined CPC, based in the Barbican area of London, as a partner.

He has become the firm’s head of commercial services and property development.

Steve Mole, CPC managing partner, said: “Mark’s wealth of expertise will enable us to diversify our offering and provide our existing and future clients with a more holistic consultancy service. Mark will be a key contributor to our property and construction division.”

CPC was set up in 1990 and has a turnover of £22m. It employs around 185 people.

Cleverly (pictured) was at Arcadis since 2014, after the Dutch consultant snapped up EC Harris.

Before the merger, Cleverly, a quantity surveyor by trade, had spent five years at EC Harris heading up its higher education arm.

Prior to joining EC Harris, Cleverly spent 10 years at Davis Langdon before that firm was bought by Aecom.

Edel Christie, managing director of buildings at Arcadis, has drafted in Andy Matthews to head up its commercial developers business while the search for Cleverly’s permanent replacement continues.

Matthews, who is a partner at Arcadis, currently heads up the consultant’s UK cost management operations.
