UK property consultancy Carter Jonas has strengthened its Geospatial services with a series of new appointments, including a new head of team.
The firm has appointed Simon Nigh as Head of Mapping and Geospatial. Nigh joined Carter Jonas in 2020 with over two decades in the sector.
His previous experience includes roles at Getmapping PLC, as well as in the Geospatial Exploitation Wing with the Royal School of Military Survey and the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps NATO. He has also provided Geospatial analysis products to SME-level organisations and, as a geodetic surveyor, conducted GPS assessments throughout Europe and the Middle East.
Since joining Carter Jonas, Nigh has supported the expansion of its national Geographic Information System (GIS) and mapping services. Its Mapping and Geospatial team has grown by 50 per cent over the last two and a half years, including the strengthening of its Measured Survey capabilities in Northampton and launching a GIS Projects team in Birmingham, complementing the work of the existing GIS mapping specialists based there.
Additionally, the business has recruited Mark Kieras as a Partner and Head of Measured Survey. Kieras will be based out of Birmingham and has 25 years of experience in the sector. A contemporary of Nigh’s, he was also in the British Army, where the duo worked together as part of the Royal Engineers specialising in Geodetic Survey. Kieras is renowned as a dynamic and intelligent senior geospatial manager in Land Survey and GIS. He has a proven record of enhancing and developing geospatial requirements in both defence and, more recently, in the commercial sector.
