Multi-disciplinary consulting engineering firm, Patrick Parsons, has appointed a new finance director, following a period of sustained growth and expansion for the company.
Over the past two years Patrick Parsons has acquired Twickenham-based JSA Consulting Engineers and The Stilwell Partnership based in Guildford, taking the firm to over 170 staff across eight UK and two international offices. Following the acquisitions, Leanne Hannan has been appointed as finance director and will lead and develop the finance team across the Parsons Group.

“I am thrilled at the opportunity to support the company through the next stage of its journey.”
Peter Stienlet, managing director of Patrick Parsons, said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Leanne as finance director. She brings with her a wealth of experience and will play a vital role in supporting the company in delivering further growth and expansion.”
