Didcot-based multi-disciplinary surveying and engineering consultancy Glanville has appointed Tim Foxall as its new managing director.

Mr Foxall, who becomes only the fourth managing director in the company’s 50-year history, will replace Howard Gell who is stepping down after 11 years although he will remain on the board.

Mr Foxall initially joined Glanville as a graduate in 2001. After a spell outside the business, including with consultancies and Oxfordshire County Council, he returned to Glanville in 2008, joining the board in 2012 where he also headed transport and highways.

In 2019 he was one of six directors who completed a management buyout of the company.

Mr Foxall said: “Being entrusted with the role of managing director as we enter our 51st year is an honour and privilege. Glanville has proven its resilience in challenging economic conditions and following the management buyout in 2019, it is well positioned to grow into its next half century. I belief that we have earned the right to be the engineering, design and surveying consultancy of choice.

“It is in our DNA that Glanville directors come up through the business and so completely understand vision and values. We continue to offer these opportunities for our staff to progress in the same way the new shareholders have.

“With this ethos driving the way we do business for over 50 years, Glanville offers a consistency and quality of service to our clients that is unrivalled in our field of work.”​
