Following the recent appointment of Laura Stamboulieh and Guy Brett to GVA’s UK Public Sector Advisory platform, the team has been strengthened further by the addition of Ian Thompson as an associate.

Thompson is a real estate strategy and regeneration specialist with over 30 years’ experience. He joins from Cushman & Wakefield and was formerly a director of the South West regional development agency. As well as working alongside Laura and Guy across the platform, Ian will be active with clients in the devolved sector, advising combined authorities, local enterprise partnerships and One Public Estate partnerships.

Thompson has worked across the local authority, blue light and central government sectors, including managing major regeneration and economic development programmes. He has built a track record advising Local Enterprise Partnerships, Enterprise Zones and public-private joint ventures.

Laura Stamboulieh, Senior Director said: “GVA’s strategic advisory offer specialises in helping the public sector to make the most of its real estate assets as well as engage with the private sector to meet its operational and regeneration objectives. Ian’s diverse skills and experience are highly pertinent to creating bespoke solutions that will address the challenges faced by the public sector.”
