Thomson unveils latest expansion

We are super excited to unveil our new branch based in East Anglia, strengthening our presence across the UK.

The expansion has led to the recruitment of three new roles and presents the opportunity for more than 20 new roles in the next 12 months, supporting the company’s impressive growth plans and service demand.

We have welcomed James Booty as Senior Ecological Consultant and Regional Office Manager at the new East Anglia branch. Chris Bridge, a highly accomplished field Ecologist with a wide range of experience, will join James in leading and managing the growing East Anglia team as Senior Ecological Consultant. Ana Pino-Blanco, a licensed bat specialist with considerable experience in supporting clients with various bat survey and mitigation techniques, will also join the office as an Ecological Consultant.

We have also welcomed two new positions to our Manchester and Cardiff branches!

Former News Editor of the Royal Horticultural Society, Dr Martin Page, has joined the company as the Regional Manager and Principal Ecologist in Manchester to bolster the consultancy’s botanical skills while driving the expansion of the Manchester team.

Rosy Benbow joined the Cardiff branch as Principal Ecological Consultant, bringing a wide breadth of experience from Biodiversity Net Gain to breeding bird surveys and will support the Cardiff team manager in delivering on existing project commitments and initiating new leads for business in Wales and the South West of England.

The appointments follow a series of contract wins, including rail and highway upgrade schemes, habitat monitoring for Natural England, and biodiversity net gain assessments for various strategic developments.

Thomson Environmental Consultants’ new Chief Operating Officer (COO) Lucy Hunt and former COO at Environment Agency, said of the appointments:

“Our commitment to excellence is reinforced by our focus on recruiting and nurturing local expertise within our team, which strongly emphasises regional specialisms. We are a people business and continue to invest in attracting and retaining the very best talent in the sector. These key hires are no exception and extend the capabilities and capacity of the business as a leading independent consultancy.

“The expansion of our offices into East Anglia is of strategic importance, and the branch is already looking at expansion to meet client needs. The new team members will contribute innovation and dedication to meet the evolving needs of our expanding business. All the while ensuring the company’s long legacy of high-quality service and dedication to deliver value for clients is maintained”
