We have announced that seven of our studio directors have been promoted to principals. The move reflects our strategy for international growth and our commitment to enhancing our position as a market leader in the UK.
Caroline Robbie and Sami Kazemi have become BDP principals, joining Les Klein, Richard Witt and Anna Madeira to build our presence in new sectors across North America from our Toronto studio.
Jeremy Farrington, who heads up our Singapore studio, also takes on the new role to increase our market share in Asia with a focus on urban design, transportation and mixed-use places.
In Dublin, Michael Mullen, who leads large scale urban regeneration and leisure projects such as The Net Zero Carbon Wren Hotel, Bonham Quay and Augustine Hill, takes on his new role and Max Martin, who has been instrumental in developing and leading major healthcare projects in both the UK and international locations, is promoted in Sheffield.
From our London Studio, James Baker and Kathryn Tombling have commenced their positions as BDP principals. James will lead workplace projects for both private and public sectors and Kathryn’s expertise in the design of major housing and regeneration developments will see us strengthen our work for developers, agents and local authorities, under her guidance.
Chief Executive, Nick Fairham, said: “As we enter 2022, we are looking to the future with optimism and clear direction. We are proud to announce our seven new principals who reflect the ambition and strength of our practice and will help us secure new opportunities to design the most innovative, sustainable, people-centred places across the globe.”
Our plans for the success of our practice will be measured against higher levels of recognition for excellence of design, employee contentment and client satisfaction. These promotions are indicative of a new approach across our network of studios and we look forward to a prosperous future with them on our leadership team.”
