Multidisciplinary engineering consultancy, Cundall, has announced the appointment of three new Partners within its global leadership team as it moves into 2021, including Birmingham-based engineer, Alex Carter. Along with Barbara Sacha in London and Lee French in Dubai, Alex brings the number of partners in the business to 47, strengthening its existing leadership team, and paving the way for continued growth in the year ahead.
Based in Cundall’s Birmingham office, Alex Carter has a lead role in managing the business’s structures team and providing support and mentoring to colleagues throughout Cundall’s global business. When he joined Cundall as Associate Director in 2016, Alex had spent most of his career working across the globe, and this experience delivering projects with different cultural considerations have prepared him for working in Cundall’s Singapore and Dubai offices, as well as in Birmingham where he is based.
In the 18 months prior to his promotion to Partner, Alex has led the delivery of projects both locally and globally, helping to grow the Birmingham Structures team in the local market and particularly bringing his extensive experience of tall buildings to the Birmingham market. Alex also demonstrates the importance of agile and cross-cultural working in the delivery of projects in other regions.
Commenting on the addition of Alex to Cundall’s leadership team, Tomás Neeson, Managing Partner at Cundall, said:
“I’m very pleased to welcome Alex as a Partner in the business and as part of the global leadership team. He joins a team of extremely talented individuals, who work hard to inspire and lead their teams, and I look forward to his input as we work together to continue growing our global practice.
“Alex has worked across the global business since joining. His experience across markets has come at a perfect time for the local Birmingham market as it continues its recent success with projects with inspirational architecture and tall buildings. Alex is taking the best of UK structural engineering to the world and bringing his experiences back to the whole UK market. Alex has also taken the lead on our Project Management Initiative, which is practice-wide.”
Cundall operates as a UK-registered Limited Liability Partnership wholly owned by the Partners – all of whom have a hands-on role in the management of the business and the projects they are commissioned to deliver.
