SLC Property is pleased to announce the appointment of Rob Smart as its new managing director.

Rob, who has previously held director positions at Turner & Townsend and Cambridge Assessment (part of the University of Cambridge), joined the land and planning services specialists this week.

Part of the SLC group of companies, SLC Property was set up specifically to help organisations who are delivering projects on or near the railway.

Rob Smart, said: “I am looking forward to working with a great team of people who have so much experience and knowledge working with public, private and rail industry organisations.

“The business already has a great track record in rail and there are enormous opportunities in the short and long term, especially around third-party funding of rail-related projects.  I’m excited to be joining the business to lead it through its next stage of growth.”

Ian Walters, MD of SLC Rail and the previous interim managing director at SLC Property, said: “I am delighted to appoint Rob as the new managing director.

“His vision and experience across a range of sectors – both as a consultant and client-side – will help take the company forward in its next chapter of growth.”
