The appointment is a significant hire for the Colmore Row firm, demonstrating further investment in the growing team which has achieved a 15% increase in turnover YOY. This significant growth has been driven by the performance of key sectors including Industrial & Logistics, where RLB has been working collaboratively on local projects with key regional clients.
Mike Sivell joins from Mace, where he was Operations Director and has over 20 years’ worth of experience in the cost management and built environment arena, having led projects such as the Longbridge Town Centre development in Birmingham. As well as carving out his prestigious career in the Midlands, Mike studied at the University of Central England and was brought up in Bromsgrove. Mike coaches the Minis and Juniors at his local rugby club, Bromsgrove RFC and when he has the time, enjoys golf and clay pigeon shooting.
Jo Reynolds, Managing Partner for the Midlands comments:
“Mike is joining us at a pivotal time for both RLB and the region. The Midlands is ready to cement its position as the UK’s second city with its plans for regeneration and innovation being brought to life with projects such as HS2 opening links across the UK and the Commonwealth Games showcasing what the region has to offer. Strengthening our Birmingham team at this time is key to maximising all the available opportunities and by bringing in new talent we are able to further leverage the existing expertise in support of our ambitious plans for growth over the next decade.”
Mike Sivell continues:
“Having worked in the Midlands for most of my career, I know RLB well and admire the quality of their team and service offering with the holistic solutions they provide to their clients. My extensive experience will complement the existing leadership and I looking forward to working with a well-respected team on some of the very best projects in the region.”
