We are pleased to welcome Marc Browne, an offshore wind specialist, and Tim Wheeler, a chartered town planner with 35 years’ experience, to Arcus.
Marc has extensive experience in the renewable energy sector, in particular offshore wind, along with other sectors such as marine fish farming. He joins Arcus as Offshore Development Manager, based in Edinburgh, to head up the Arcus offshore wind business, and develop and direct a growing workload in this exciting and varied sector.
Tim has extensive experience in planning and development, particularly in onshore wind, offshore wind and solar. He joins Arcus in the role of Principal Planner from the Planning Inspectorate where he determined more than 150 planning appeals. Tim has previously worked with major renewable energy developers, private consultancy and other UK Government agencies.
Arcus’s Managing Director Greg Shillabeer, who set up the business in 2006 and has seen it grow to over 80 staff, welcomed Marc and Tim.
“As the renewable energy sector continues to grow and develop, we are keen to ensure our clients have access to the very best technical expertise. Marc and Tim join Arcus at a very exciting time, as we provide high quality, environmental assessment services on a diverse range of clean energy projects, including offshore wind, onshore wind, solar, hydrogen and battery storage.
“We have ambitious plans for the next five years in terms of turnover and growth. Appointing talented and experienced people like Marc and Tim, whilst supporting the development of our existing team, is tremendously important to our business.”
