Armel Mourgue has been made partner in acknowledgement of 15 years of what the international landscape, masterplanning and urban design consultancy practice called "dedicated service and exceptional project and office management".

The London-based partner has also provided design leadership for the Salford creative media hub to which the BBC has moved many operations, MediaCityUK.

Robert Copeland, Oliver Duguid and David Cunningham have become associates and will support the London management team with an expanding portfolio of work. Gorana Shephard has also been made a senior associate and will continue to develop Gillespies’ urban design and masterplanning portfolio in the south region. 

In addition, Jon Clokie has joined Gillespies’ London office as a new associate and is leading the technical landscape delivery of a number of projects in the Middle East. Previously he worked for Lloyd Bore in Canterbury, Kent.

In the Oxford office, Philip Smith has been promoted to senior associate in recognition of "his hard work, technical expertise, management skills and continued client dedication" Gillespies said. Philip has delivered many of firm’s cultural and leisure projects including Shakespeare’s New Place in Stratford-upon-Avon.

In Manchester, Warren Chapman is now an associate partner, with Helen Johnson becoming an associate to support the senior management team who are currently delivering a number of landmark projects across the region. Adam Greatrix, who is based in Leeds, has also been promoted to associate partner. He has been instrumental in the success of a number of landscape projects in the region, in particular, the award-winning Hebburn Central.

Gillespies managing partner Steve Wardell said: "Each of these talented individuals has contributed to our success as a business. These promotions are a recognition of our desire both to reward skill and talent, and to grow the practice and our management team effectively. We wish them continued success in their careers."
