Civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting has announced the appointment of a new managing director.

The firm, which has its Derby office on Pride Park, has appointed Carl Hilton to the post.

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

As well as occupying the managing director role, Carl will continue to head the structures team at BSP’s Nottingham office.

BSP is an award-winning firm that operates across the UK, offering civil engineering, structural engineering, transport engineering, geotechnical and environmental engineering.

It works across all sectors including housing, student accommodation, commercial, industrial, health, education, senior living, retail and heritage.

Mark Rayers, director at BSP, 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 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.

“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.”

As well as the appointment of a new managing director, BSP has also announced that its business development manager, Carrie Booth, will take on an expanded role in the company, which also has offices in Leicester and Sheffield.

Carl said: “Carrie 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.”

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