THOMAS & Adamson has announced the appointment of Gillian Kirkness as regional director.
The construction and property consultant said the move is designed to support the company’s growth plans.
Kirkness has previously held the roles of equity director at Doig & Smith, and project director at Axiom Project Services Limited, in a career spanning over 25 years. She joins the business following a two-year sabbatical pursuing a passion project in gelato making in Bologna.
Brian Donaldson, partner at Thomas & Adamson, said, “Gill brings a wealth of knowledge, energy and leadership and is a key addition in strengthening and growing our cost management division. Very rarely do we make senior appointments outside of the business, however her track record and experience mitigating risk will be of great value as we continue to deliver major projects across the UK and UAE.”
Gillian Kirkness is a director and trustee of Ronald McDonald House in Glasgow, who give parents and care givers a free ‘home from home’ to stay while their seriously ill child is in hospital. She will continue to take an active role in the running and fundraising of the Scottish charity. She said, “T&A has seen fantastic success in recent years. I look forward to building on this growth and ultimately establishing the firm as one of the market leaders in cost management in the UK.”
