As a Director in our Politics, Engagement and Planning division, Ed is responsible for a lot of our public sector work with the NHS, Councils and housing associations.
He led the resident engagement programme for Newlon Housing Trust and Mount Anvil on their estate renewal proposals at the Barnsbury Estate in Islington. This involved overseeing all communications and engagement with residents and managing the campaign ahead of the successful residents’ ballot which saw 79.2% of residents voting in favour of the proposals. Ed continues to work with Newlon and works on a number of other estate renewal briefs.
Ed leads our work with the NHS on hospital regeneration projects, including with The Royal Marsden, Barnet Hospital, Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust, and St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He has also been working with NHS Property Services for a number of years on their proposals for a new life sciences cluster in Tower Hamlets.
As well as his work in the public sector, Ed works for a variety of private developers on high-profile schemes across London. He has built his experience and networks across a number of Boroughs which include supporting British Land on their proposals for Canada Water; working with Frogmore in RBKC on office and hotel developments; leading engagement on Crosstree’s regeneration of the Edmonton Green shopping centre in Enfield; and managing robust strategic communications for a number of projects in The City.
Ed has been with the LCA team since August 2015, originally joining as an Account Manager, having previously spent seven years managing external and internal communications campaigns at NHS organisations in London and Manchester. He graduated from The University of Liverpool with a degree in History and Politics, and then achieved the CIPR Advanced Certificate in Public Relations at Leeds Metropolitan University.
Ed tries to keep active whether cycling, running, or chasing around after his three young children!
