The Wates Group has appointed Scott Camp as managing director of its Smartspace division.
Previously the division’s commercial director, Camp takes on the role of running Wates’ fit-out and refurbishment business from September.
Camp’s announcement is part of a series of changes at the Wates Group, which is restructuring “to focus on the opportunities that lie ahead in its key markets”. As part of these changes, Smartspace has become part of the Wates Property Services (WPS) business.
“Smartspace has the flexibility to adapt and respond quickly to changing circumstances, and recent appointments to help Government departments reopen their premises on a Covid-secure basis have demonstrated how our teams can be trusted to work under pressure and in critical environments,” said Camp.
“We work across an enormous range of sectors right across the UK and are actively discussing with many of our customers how we can help them upgrade and make best use of their estates. I look forward to leading the business through this next, exciting stage of our development and growth.”
In 2019, Wates Smartspace undertook 600 projects across the UK.
