Nexus has recruited two planners for its Reading office.

Mykena Mortimer-Davies has joined from Pegasus Group in Bracknell while Peter Davis has joined from Turley in Reading.

Miss Mortimer-Davies who was born in Neath, grew up in the Middle East before moving back to the UK where she attended Aberystwyth University, graduating in 2016. She moved to Reading in 2019 when she joined Pegasus.

Mr Davis grew up in Reading, graduated at the University of Gloucestershire in 2016 and gained an MSc in Spatial Planning and Development in 2018.

Adam Ross, executive director and lead in the Reading office in Thames Tower, said: “It is an exciting time for us at Nexus, both nationally and specifically for Nexus in Reading, as we start a much-needed – and hopefully more optimistic – new year.

“We’re thrilled to have Mykena and Peter join the team, with each bringing their own experience and enthusiasm for the planning industry and the Thames Valley more generally.

“Whilst the first quarter of 2021 will be challenging for all due to the ongoing impacts of Covid-19, I am excited about the significant and diverse portfolio of work being carried out in our Reading office.”
