Darran Kitchener, our Associate Director and Office Lead for our northern office said: “It’s a truly exciting time for us here. Three years since we opened the office and I’m pleased to be welcoming three new faces to the team. Not only will the new starters offer us more stability and experience, but the ability to adapt quicker to Clients demands and develop the business even further.”   

Matt Stevens, Managing Director of Milestone said: “We have been looking at expanding the business for a number of months and these new hires are just the start of a wider plan to consolidate our existing offer to Clients, whilst expanding into new and growing areas. With an expanded team of people across our two offices, we are able to offer a truly Nationwide coverage with industry-leading service -  this has been our best summer ever with regards the plethora of projects!.”
