Clancy Consulting has appointed Chris Lewis as divisional director to lead the team in the multidisciplinary consultant’s Newcastle office.
Lewis has over 18 years’ experience within the construction industry and has significant project management experience having successfully delivered numerous projects leading multidisciplinary teams. Lewis began his career working for Newcastle City Council and has more recently held senior positions with Network Rail and AECOM.
Commenting on his appointment, Lewis said: “I am delighted to join Clancy Consulting and I am looking forward to working with their excellent team.
