A fresh approach for JMS Leicester

When we realised we needed someone to take over our current Leicester team, to make even bigger and better, there was only one name on our list. That was Lynn Clancy who we are delighted to announce has joined JMS as an Associate Director.

Lynn is the new ‘head honcho’ at the Leicester office, the man in charge of overseeing the many and very exciting projects we have lined up for the Midlands.

From the Middle East to the Midlands

Lynn developed a reputation for his diplomatic management skills whilst dealing with clients in Bahrain. He managed some very prestigious projects for some of the richest and most powerful people and organisations in the world. Keeping them happy was one thing, but doing so whilst the Arab Spring was in full swing was an additional challenge not many would relish.

Lynn thrived though and landed plenty of success. “It’s about listening very carefully and being able to understand and evaluate the logistics of the project right from day one. It it practical and deliverable? Once you establish that it’s about being pragmatic. Roads and towers have to be built after all.”

Whilst political revolution doesn’t seem high on the agenda in the Midlands (despite the recent Conservative Party Conference there), Civil and Structural Engineering projects need equally careful management.

As Architects continue to find new and creative ways to shape the landscape to serve the needs of growing populations and inner city redevelopment, it falls to the team at JMS to ensure such creativity can be successfully engineered.

These beautiful structures and innovative infrastructure must be underpinned by environmentally friendly, cost effective and safety conscious engineering.


JMS’s Leicester office is located at the Innovation Centre on Oxford Street which is itself a striking local landmark. The team there will be growing to meet the demand for strong construction leadership.

“I’ll be building a talented, skilled team over the next few months and years, adding plenty of skilled jobs into the local economy” said Lynn. “I will also be attracting and developing clients into the region, building long term relations with the people who will invest in Leicester as we take on redevelopment projects across all sectors.”

Another boost for JMS

Daniel Staines, MD of the JMS Group, is delighted to have such a renowned talent on board. “Lynn Clancy is the ideal person to lead the way for us in the Midlands.

Lynn will use our intuitive communications and management system, collaborative resources and experience to ensure that JMS continues to do amazing work there.”

It’s an exciting time for JMS and an exciting time for Leicester and the Midlands as the area continues to enjoy massive redevelopment and investment.
