DPP are delighted to announce the following promotions;

Matt Rhodes is promoted from Principal Planner to Associate Director.

Matt joined DPP in 2015 as an Assistant Planner and became Principal Planner last year. Matt’s rapid progression to Associate Director reflects the significant contribution he has made to several major schemes including a successful land bid for a major urban extension in East Yorkshire, numerous school extension and replacement school schemes on which he has a 100% track record, and a major co-living/student residential accommodation scheme in Sheffield.

Lee Fulcher is promoted to Planner from Assistant. Lee joined DPP in 2018 following a degree in Disaster Management at Coventry University & has continued his studies while working at DPP, completing an MSc in Town Planning at Newcastle University. Lee has recently been involved in a number of regionally significant schemes such as Mo Mowlam School, Throckley Meadow Hill and Aykley Heads Durham. He has also recently been nominated for New Professional of the Year at the G4C North East Awards.

Debbie Harrop is promoted from Business Administrator to Business Operations Manager.

Debbie joined DPP in 2018 and has led a number of initiatives to improve operational efficiency as well as providing support to the wider company on the day to day running of the business.

Speaking about the promotions, Chief Executive Officer, Gareth Hooper said;

We are delighted to confirm these promotions across the business. In each case the individuals have excelled in delivering exceptional results for clients or in enhancing DPP’s operational efficiency. I am particularly delighted that the promotion of Matt Rhodes to Associate Director continues a strongly held belief of promoting from within the company, reflected in two thirds of Directors in the business working their way up from Senior Planner or below. Matt, Lee and Debbie have all made significant contributions to the business and we look forward to working with them and colleagues to continue to deliver exceptional results for our clients.”
