East Midlands-based civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting has appointed Carl Hilton as managing director.

BSP director Mark Rayers said: “We’d like to congratulate Carl Hilton on his appointment as managing director of BSP Consulting, as we begin a new chapter in the life of the business. Carl has been with us for more than 16 years and has a wealth of experience in the sector and has consistently demonstrated his ability to successfully contribute to developing the business over the years.”

Carl, who will continue to head the structures team in the Nottingham office of BSP Consulting, said: “We have a great team here at BSP Consulting and I am proud and excited to have been appointed as managing director, and look forward to the future as we continue our mission statement to offer first-class civil and structural engineering services throughout the construction sector.”

The appointment of Carl follows the upcoming retirement of BSP co-founder Dave Sumner after a long and distinguished career in the industry.

Carl said: “On behalf of my fellow directors and our whole team, I would like to thank Dave Sumner for his hard work, professionalism and commitment to the company. Dave is one of the original four founding BSP directors and has helped to shape and guide the business from its inception in 1999 to what it is today – a prominent and well-regarded member of the construction sector in the East Midlands. We wish Dave all the very best for his upcoming retirement.”

At the same time, BSP business development manager Carrie Booth will take on an expanded role in the company, which has offices in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Sheffield.

Carl said: “Carrie Booth joined BSP 17 years ago and has excelled in the business development role that she has undertaken for some time now – helping to grow BSP into one of the largest independent civil and structural engineering companies in the East Midlands. We are very pleased that she is taking on an expanded role as we move forward.”

Business development manager Carrie Booth said: “I am delighted to be taking on an expanded role, building on the successful business development work undertaken here at BSP.”
