Tritax Symmetry has continued its recruitment drive with the appointment of Sinead Turnbull as a new planning director in the Northampton office.
Sinead joins the logistics development company from DLP Planning where she headed up the Rugby office. Prior to that, Sinead was senior planning officer at Hartlepool Borough Council and more recently at Northampton Borough Council. An experienced town planner, Sinead has also held roles at Durham, Wear Valley and Sedgefield Councils.
At Tritax Symmetry, Sinead’s remit will be to work with the development team on strategic logistics and infrastructure projects across the UK.
The news follows the appointment of new development director, Alex Reynolds earlier this month.
Speaking about the appointment, Richard Bowen, Managing Director at Tritax Symmetry, said: “Due to the size, scope and complexity of the schemes we are involved in, we have taken the decision to expand our dedicated in-house planning resource.
“Sinead is our third in-house planner and will provide additional strategic direction at a senior level thanks to her thorough understanding of the town planning system and extensive public sector experience.”
Sinead said: “Tritax Symmetry are widely recognised as being at the cutting edge of logistics and this role offered me an excellent opportunity to specialise in an ever-growing sector and one that is of significant importance to the national economy.
“Having worked in various Councils for many years, I’m looking forward the new challenge of working client-side with the highly experienced team that is already in place.”
