Symonds, who joins from Baxter Storey where he looked after clients including BA, Siemens and RBS, will report to managing director Paul Hurren as part of a wider team restructure.

The restructure will see Symonds take responsibility for managing all sites under the Lusso brand, with three operations managers, two group managers, a site manager and a project manager reporting to him. Hurren will adopt a more strategic role, aiming to grow the Lusso portfolio by working in partnership with his business development team. 

Symonds said: "I have been really impressed with the brand and the people in the front line of our business. Lusso comes up with bespoke solutions for each client, creates change and reacts quickly, while the support of a larger company (parent CH&Co) ensures we have the purchasing power to provide great value to clients too." 

Hurren added: "Matt joins at a very exciting time. We are going through a dynamic period of change as we continue to put our customers first in everything we do, and also go for growth. Joining now gives Matt the opportunity to help shape the future of the business."
