Tom has acquired a broad range of ecological consultancy experience since joining Middlemarch as a placement student in 2005, subsequently progressing through a variety of key roles within the business. Tom is recognised for his expertise in project management, Ecological Impact Assessment and the design and implementation of ecological mitigation (including biodiversity net gain). He combines a high degree of technical expertise with pragmatism, a talent for fostering confidence, acute commercial nous and an ability to always see the bigger picture.
His vision for the company is borne of his appreciation of the complexity of human interaction with ecosystems and an innate passion for the natural world. He is terrifically excited by the opportunities presented for Middlemarch by the growing societal engagement with and concern for the natural world, which is driving profound change in policy-making, regulation and organisational approaches to sustainability. At the heart of his approach is the desire to progress the discipline of professional ecology and to make a lasting contribution to the long overdue recovery of nature in the UK.
Tom is a Chartered Ecologist and a member of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). He qualified with an MSc (Distinction) in Ecology and Management of the Natural Environment from the University of Bristol, where he completed lectures in the shadow of the Clifton suspension bridge (we’ve all got a favourite bridge, right?). His interests outside of work include an obsession with obscure 1970s rock music and, having grown up a stone’s throw from Edgbaston and Villa Park, an enduring passion for watching football and cricket played badly.
We at Middlemarch look forward to a vibrant, exciting future under Tom’s tenure.
