Planning and development consultancy Montagu Evans has appointed David Jones FCA as Finance Director. He succeeds Donald Smith who is retiring from the partnership.
David joins from Colliers International where he was EMEA Finance Director, leading the London- and Prague-based EMEA finance function and sitting on the EMEA Executive leadership team.
At Montagu Evans he is responsible for the partnership’s finance and compliance functions leading a team of 11. He sits on the Board and will be working closely with the firm’s Heads of Department and sector team leads as part of his role.
Rob Bower, Managing Partner at Montagu Evans, said: “David’s track record in the property sector and forward-looking approach makes him the ideal fit for Montagu Evans as our much-valued colleague Donald Smith retires. We are continuing to invest in central services and business systems that will support our Partners and their teams, giving them more time for clients and collaboration.”
David Jones, Finance Director at Montagu Evans, added: “Montagu Evans stands out for its ethos and culture. There is real momentum and energy on the back of the relocation to a new office and the celebration of our centenary year, so for me the opportunity to be part of the next chapter with the partnership was extremely exciting and immediately attractive.”
