Jonathan Darke, principal director at tp bennett, said: “Experience in education, healthcare, security and an understanding of what people need from their environments has created an exciting new opportunity for the practice to expand its sector reach and engage new partnerships. The new team will work cross-sector and we look forward to sharing their knowledge with the wider team.”
