London-based architecture and design firm Perkins+Will has announced the appointment of a new Associate Principal, Jason Turner, who joined the firm in early March.
With over 25 years experience working in interior design, Turner has completed projects for corporations from Facebook and Microsoft to Rio Tinto and AstraZeneca, as well as Bank of China, SMBC, and Deutsche Bank.
Steven Charlton, Managing Director of Perkins+Will’s London studio, comments: “Bringing Jason into our team will benefit us with his wealth of knowledge and expertise, built up from an international career in workplace strategy and business development. The depth and breadth of his engagement with FTSE 100 companies will be crucial as we continue to grow the practice here in London and the wider EMEA region.”
Turner has prominent experience working in Asia, overseeing large projects in Shanghai, Tokyo and Hong Kong. He has also delivered workplace strategy and concept design proposals for the offices of a global management consultancy across five European capitals. Closer to home, he oversaw base build modifications and fitouts for the London headquarters of the world’s largest publicly traded hedge fund company, Man Group.
The appointment of a new Associate Principal specialising in strategic advice is intended to bolster Perkins+Will’s reputation in project delivery while expanding its capacity to take on new projects in related sectors. Turner joins the interiors team, which has overseen office fitouts for clients such as The Economist, Deloitte, News UK, Microsoft, and Linklaters.
“I am thrilled to join Perkins+Will’s London office at such an exciting time, helping to lead the interior team’s business development,” says Turner. “Having worked across Eurasia for several years with large corporate clients, we have an exciting opportunity to apply this experience to continue Perkins+Will’s rise as a major player in the London market.”
