WWA names new managing partner


Construction consultancy Ward Williams Associates has appointed a new managing partner.

James Beckly, who has more than 20 years’ property development and construction industry experience, will work alongside senior partner, Andy Snapes, to support the development of the business’s growth plan towards a national presence.

His primary focus will be on the operational delivery within the business, as well as progressing towards the senior partner role, when Snapes stands down in November 2023.

Snapes said: “It is fantastic to have someone of James’ capability and experience joining me at the helm of the business as we prepare for the next phase of our evolution.

“It is also critical that we plan for a seamless transition of the senior leadership role, and provide reassurance to our team, our clients, and everyone that works with WWA, that it will be business as usual when the time comes for me to stand down as senior partner.

“I have every confidence that James’ drive, infectious personality, and professionalism will significantly add to our capacity to evolve and sustainably grow. I offer him my unequivocal support and congratulations as he assumes this important new role for the business.”

Headquartered in Truro, WWA also has offices in Exeter, Plymouth, Gloucester, Salisbury, London and, most recently, Manchester.
