In a continuing expansion at the top, Scott Carver has appointed Angela Biddle and Esther Dickins as directors, in order to provide a true reflection of the growth and gender diversity of the design firm at the board level, according to the firm.

Angela Biddle and Esther Dickins join Doug Southwell and Andrew Turnbull as directors at Scott Carver, and Rodney Paesler as managing director.

Rodney Paesler, managing director of Scott Carver says, “Importantly for me, I am excited to welcome two female members to the board, completing a business goal to achieve gender diverse leadership and gender pay equity at all levels of the business.”

 “I look forward to working with my partners to continue to grow the practice, to collectively produce simple, crafted, elegant design, and most importantly, to help our clients tell their stories in meaningful ways,” says Biddle.

According to Esther Dickins, “I am excited to have the opportunity to join the current Directors, Rodney, Doug and Andrew in leading Scott Carver towards new opportunities and expanding markets.”

“I am particularly excited to be taking this role alongside Angela, as she brings great energy and dynamism to the team. It has been a joy to build the landscape architecture team over the past few years, and I now relish in this next chapter, stepping into a wider role in the company to be part of its future direction,” she says.

These promotions also see Andrew Turnbull dedicate his focus to Scott Carver’s international operations, consolidating five years of activity in China.

“As a team, we are committed to becoming a global design citizen, something we all believe is important for us to remain relevant and at the forefront of leading design ideas at Scott Carver,” says Paesler.

“With a permanent office now in China to serve this market, I am equally proud to say we have concurrent projects in progress across five different countries.”
