Ian Cameron has joined Transport Planning Associates as a non-executive director. Ian retired as Chairman and Managing Director of JMP Consultants in 2009 and has since worked as an independent management consultant advising national and international consultancies on strategy, business development and acquisitions.
A founding director of TPA, Rupert Lyons, said “In recognising that TPA’s success has been built on the technical skill-sets, experience and professional expertise of its people, the directors of the Company have, for some time, been searching for an outside influence that can assist us to achieve our Vision.”
Commenting on Ian’s role in the Company, Rupert said “He’s not here to help us become better transport planners, traffic engineers or infrastructure designers but to share his knowledge and wealth of experience, and to challenge our thinking, style and processes so that we deliver our key short, medium, and longer term objectives.”
Joining the Board of TPA, Ian said “I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with the TPA board, to build on the excellent profile they have achieved as transport consultant of choice to some of the UK’s most successful developers. I have already been impressed by the dynamism of the TPA directors and their determination not to sit on their laurels but to continue to develop the quality and value of their services to new and existing clients.”
Ian’s role will be to assist the Company to achieve the four elements of its Vision:
‘To become and remain a best in class consultancy;
to gain the respect of the communities and project teams within which we work;
to create a working environment that attracts the most talented professionals;
and to be our clients’ consultant of choice.
