Tariq Shaikh replaces Alistair Cory who left last week

Gensler has appointed a new head of its Birmingham office with former boss Alistair Cory leaving at the end of last week to take up a new role at Oxford university.

The US giant, which remained the biggest practice in the world last year according to the latest WA Top 100 survey, opened its first office outside London at the beginning of 2016.

At the time Cory, who had been with Gensler since September 2014, said the office at the city’s Custard Factory site will be the hub for the firm’s regional work.

His replacement is Tariq Shaikh (pictured) who becomes Birmingham office leader and who has been at the firm since 1999.

According to the WA Top 100, Gensler employs more than 2,500 architects worldwide and a fees income last year of $1 billion to $1.5 billion – head and shoulders above second-placed Nikken Sekkei’s $500 million to $599 million.
