As the leading communications, media and public affairs consultancy specialising in UK and international real estate and the built environment – Redwood continues to grow and has made a series of new appointments and promotions over recent months – Chris White, Joshua Lindsey-Turner, Sarah Walker and Isabel Stoddart.
Chris White has joined Redwood as an Account Director from global architecture and urbanism practice Broadway Malyan, where he was Head of Group PR. He was previously PR Manager at international engineering consultancy Buro Happold. Consultancy-side, Chris has advised a range of global blue chip professional services companies, high-profile public sector organisations and prestigious membership bodies.

The team has also been bolstered by Joshua Lindsey-Turner joining as Account Manager. Joshua has a solid grounding in public affairs and stakeholder engagement, having worked on major projects with both regional and national reach – including some of the largest town centre developments, estate regenerations and renewable energy schemes. He will support the growth of Redwood’s public affairs and stakeholder engagement offer.
Sarah Walker joins Redwood from the PR team at Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward in September as Account Manager, bringing considerable experience in communications for the built environment, planning and housing built over in-house and agency roles.

Meanwhile, Redwood has promoted five team members – Pia Choudhury becomes Associate Director, Clare Hartshorne and Kathleen MacMillan rise to Account Directors, and Drew McNeill and PJ Appleton become Senior Account Executives.
