Arc Partnership appoints new Managing Director

Prior to joining the Arc Partnership team, Daniel worked for our delivery partner Kier, where he served as Partnership Director with responsibility for operations, managing public sector partnerships and joint ventures with local authorities.

During his 14 years there, Daniel worked in a number of roles including Head of HR for Kier’s building maintenance division and National Business Development Director.

Arc represents a genuine step-change for public-private collaboration and innovation. Public bodies are increasingly looking to take a more ‘hands on’ approach to management of their public estates, but want to retain the very best capability and flexibility that the private sector offers. Through Arc, we’re putting the public sector in the driving seat, offering commercial acumen with a social conscience and public service ethos.

Before entering the private sector, Daniel spent 20 years at Sheffield City Council, including four years as Head of HR for the council’s direct services organisations. During this time he also supported the council’s economic development and regeneration department in securing funding for local investment in jobs and skills. His experience of public estate management and built environment projects from both public and private sector perspectives will help to further support Arc’s unique offer to the public sector.

In his new role, Daniel will oversee the delivery of Arc’s programme of built environment projects and services for Nottinghamshire County Council and will lead the team in expanding their public sector client base across the region.

Our first priority is to deliver Nottinghamshire County Council’s ambitious £200m capital investment programme, which is of vital importance to the local community. We will also set out our plan for sustainable growth and explore how we can utilise Arc’s expertise to deliver collaboration and efficiencies on projects for the wider public sector.

Daniel’s strategic leadership will help to propel Arc’s growth and drive future innovation and with this, Arc will remain at the very forefront of public sector innovation.
