LUC announces new appointments and other changes
As part of its strategy to further develop its environmental impact assessment (EIA) services, Joanna Wright has been appointed head of EIA at LUC.
Joanna has managed a considerable number of LUC’s large scale EIA projects, including that for Clyde Wind Farm, one of the largest consented on-shore wind farms in Western Europe. She will be responsible for ensuring LUC continues to provide a high quality and competitive EIA service.
Nick Hilton has been appointed as a new director of environmental planning with the EIA team and will work closely with Joanna. Nick has a strong track record of successful business development in the UK, Africa and Asia. He has considerable experience in the energy, infrastructure and development sectors where he has been involved as an EIA practitioner and project manager for both public- and private-sector clients.
Marc van Grieken will be leaving LUC to become an independent consultant at the beginning of 2015. Marc will continue to work in partnership with LUC’s highly experienced team of landscape and visual specialists and to advise on many projects.
Changes have also taken place within the LUC board: Steve Jackson Matthews (director, ecology), and Philip Smith (director, planning), have been elected as new board members, replacing Marc van Grieken and Jon Grantham who have both stood down after many years of service.
