Gomersal swaps Deloitte for Lichfields
Emma Gomersal has joined the Leeds office of the planning consultancy as associate director as the firm looks to bolster its Yorkshire operations.
Gomersal joins the team at Lichfields’ St Paul’s Street office, leaving her previous role as assistant director at Deloitte Real Estate.
She will work alongside a 15-strong team of planning and development specialists, bringing 15 years’ experience to the role, having worked on residential planning working for a mix of developers and major landowners across Yorkshire. She also formerly had spells with DPP and WYG.
In the new role, she will focus on strategic planning, housing and commercial development alongside progressing business development initiatives.
Chris Darley, senior director and head of the Leeds office said: “Emma will be a major asset to the Leeds office, which saw a strong performance across all areas of operation last year.
“With the opportunities presented by the Government’s new planning reforms, we are committed to assisting our clients in realising their growth ambitions. Emma’s addition will strengthen our team, extend our client reach, and enhance our ability to service a pipeline of existing and upcoming projects.”
Gomersal added: “I’m really looking forward to taking my career to another level and working with the team on new opportunities. We are involved in some fantastic high-profile projects and exciting schemes, which show the added value, insight and experience we bring to client services.”
