GVA has announced several internal appointments to help support the delivery of its business growth.

Chris Cheap, Regional Senior Director of GVA’s Manchester office will join its Management Board to represent GVA’s 12 regional offices and guide alignment of regional with national activity.

Carl Potter has been appointed as Regional Senior Director of GVA’s Birmingham office to replace Ian Stringer who is stepping down after 10 years in the role. Taking over from Carl, Charles Toogood has been appointed to the role of GVA’s National Head of Offices, also retaining his existing position as head of the Midlands Offices team.

Ian will remain with GVA, working with a number of the firm’s key clients.

Carl is taking the reins at an important time for GVA’s Midlands office, with several significant projects ongoing, demonstrated in its recent appointment by Birmingham City Council on Peddimore.

Carl and Charles will continue to advise a wide range of public and private sector clients, manage transactions and provide strategic advice on major development projects.

Gerry Hughes, Chief Executive, said: “GVA is in an exciting period of growth and our ambitions for the future are underpinned by the strength of our regional network. Chris has a proven track record and his appointment to our Management Board will further harness the power of our regional network.

“In addition, Carl and Charles bring exceptional expertise to their new leadership roles. They have added considerable value in their careers at GVA to date and are well positioned to continue building on these successes.

“Ian has been crucial in cementing our position as one of the leading firms in the Midlands and helping us to achieve a record turnover in the region last year. I am grateful to him for leading the Midlands region for the last ten years and look forward to continuing to benefit from his expertise at GVA.”
