Richard Jones [square]Arcadis has appointed Richard Jones as its new northern cities executive to represent the organisation across the north of England.

Jones, who brings 25 years of experience, will represent the organisation at the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, helping to rebalance the economy and narrow the North-South divide.

As city executive, Jones will work closely with local authority leaders and the business community across the region to help them navigate the urban environment landscape. He will help to shape the North and the opportunities available to make it an ideal place to live and work.

Jones said: “With a renewed focus on the devolution agenda, there is an opportunity to play a pivotal role in allowing the North to realise its vast potential, working across the public and private sector.

“The opportunity, in critical areas including transport, energy and net zero, is immense and I am hugely looking forward to taking on this challenging and rewarding role.”
