ARDENT, the leading Glasgow-based surveying, communications and consents management practice, has appointed Sharon Daly as a non-executive director to help drive the next wave of growth.

Sharon is the chief operating officer of Steer, a global consultancy that combines commercial, economic, technical and planning expertise to support clients across the world.

She has worked with Ardent on a range of projects over the last 20 years, most recently on the Bank Station capacity upgrade for Transport for London. As non-executive director, Sharon brings operational experience and expertise, including deep knowledge of equality, diversity and inclusion and environmental, social and corporate governance to the Board..

Her appointment is the latest move by Ardent to execute its ambitious growth plans after it reached £10 million turnover in its most recent accounts. 

The company, which has expertise in the transport, renewables, utilities and regeneration sectors, has offices in Birmingham, London, Leeds, Glasgow, Warrington and Dublin and expects to reach a 250 headcount by 2026.

Richard Caten, chief executive of Ardent, said: “We have made no secret that we are very ambitious when it comes to growth and that has seen us make a series of appointments and promotions over the past 18 months.

“Bringing in Sharon Daly as non-executive director is a big part of that.

“We’ve worked with Sharon, and the team at Steer, on numerous occasions over the years so we know that her experience and expertise will help support our growth and development over the coming years.”

Sharon said: “I am really pleased to join the Ardent team as a non-executive director. I’ve seen Ardent grow and prosper over many years and I know that they provide great advice and support to their clients. I am looking forward to playing a small part in the next stage of their journey.”
