Pick Everard boosts delivery in Wales with new regional head of project management

Delivering numerous multi-million pound residential, hotel and retail projects including a new temporary Marks & Spencer store in the immediate wake of the 1996 Manchester bomb are some of the projects that Mike Petersen has undertaken in his career.

The project manager has now joined Pick Everard’s Welsh office, based in Cardiff, as its regional head of project management in Wales and the South West.

Mike said he has been lucky enough to have had a varied career working for client, contractor and consultant alike, but he is now excited to take up his role with leading multi-professional management, design and construction consultancy, Pick Everard.

He said:

“Pick Everard is well respected in the industry by its clients, delivery partners and its competitors. The idea of a multi-discipline organisation was also attractive to me in terms of its challenges and benefits and I am looking forward to helping to grow and establish Pick Everard’s project management offering, particularly in Wales.”

Mike has worked at companies ranging from an international multi-million pound business to small regional firms. He has delivered projects throughout the UK and Europe.

He also played a key part in the delivery of landmark projects for the University of South Wales and Swansea University and helped introduce economies and efficiencies to European construction procurement and methodology at Marks & Spencer.

Rod Burton, partner at Pick Everard, said:

“We are pleased to be welcoming Mike to the Pick Everard team. His experience and expertise will be vital in helping us to quickly achieve our goals and increase our project portfolio of creating and developing our project management structure.”

Pick Everard operates across a broad range of sectors including education, blue light, healthcare, defence, custodial, industrial & manufacturing and workplace.

Services include project management, cost management, architecture, building surveying, building services engineering, civil engineering, structural engineering and management advice.

The firm currently has ten offices throughout the UK and has announced plans to add to this with a further office in Birmingham as part of its growth strategy.
