After a successful year, we’re pleased to welcome two new members of staff to the transport planning department: Catherine Zoeftig and Duncan Carter, both formerly of AECOM, join Axis as Associate Director and Senior Transport Planner respectively.
With a combined 35 years’ experience, Catherine and Duncan will join the existing transport planning team headed by Technical Director Lee Kendall, taking the team to five. The total workforce across planning, environment and landscape design services at Axis now stands at 33 staff strong.
Catherine Zoeftig, Associate Director, said: “I’m delighted to be joining Axis at such an exciting time in the growth of the transport planning business. Despite current challenges, there are huge opportunities in this area and I’m confident my experience and skills will bring positive outcomes both for the team and the business as a whole.
“Being given the chance to work with a team already providing high quality and competitively priced work, within a modern, forward-thinking and efficient business, provides an excellent opportunity for me to help grow the future transport planning workload for Axis”.
Duncan Carter, Senior Transport Planner, said: “I’m happy to have been invited to join the team at Axis for the next stage of my career. I look forward to getting involved in the wide range of exciting projects that Axis is currently delivering and supporting Lee and Catherine in the ongoing development of the transport planning team.”
Commenting on the new appointments, Lee Kendall added: “It’s a genuinely exciting time for the whole company, and Catherine and Duncan will play a big part in that going forward.
“We’re bucking the trend, having just experienced the busiest quarter in the company’s 20+ year history. We’re seeing growth in all sectors – not just from our traditional energy, waste and residential developer clients.
“Our staff’s commitment, professionalism and work ethic through the pandemic has been unparalleled and we’re now very well positioned to adapt to emerging planning and transport policy changes.”
