Speaking on the appointments, Acton commented, “It’s with great pleasure that I announce these promotions. Since day one of joining, Daniel, Steve and Gordon have made a considerable positive impact to the business and I’m excited to see them play a significant part in shaping the strategic future of Clancy alongside myself and the other board directors.”

Earlier in the year, Clancy also announced it would shift its headquarters from Altrincham to central Manchester. As Clancy begins a new chapter under the leadership of Acton, the senior appointments will reinforce ambitious plans for the UK-wide business.

Since joining as Divisional Director in the Manchester office in August 2021, Daniel Singh has showcased a great talent for working collaboratively with clients and brings a forward-thinking approach to leading the civil and structural engineering team. Successfully managing a busy division, he has secured some landmark projects, in particular large complex developments across the Greater Manchester region which are cutting edge in terms of integrating sustainable design.

Back in March 2020, Steve Dewberry joined the business overseeing the MEP Manchester team as divisional director and has been leading demanding projects across both public and private sectors. Bringing extensive knowledge and skills around sustainability and decarbonisation, he specialises in taking a creative approach to minimising a building’s environmental impact, whilst providing the most effective technical solution.

Gordon Megahy joined Clancy’s Glasgow office as part of the acquisition of DBM Consultants in 2021 and he has been championing structural timber frame solutions to clients across Scotland, and further afield, ever since. With specialist expertise in timber kit design, structural insulated panels (SIPs), and glulam and cross-laminated timber design, Megahy and his team deliver schemes across the UK, collaborating with several national specialist manufacturers and off-site providers, predominantly working on new build and extensions in the residential, education, student living and healthcare consulting.
