Dundas & Wilson (D&W) has appointed new managing partners Donald Shaw and Alan Campbell, to take effect from 1 May 2006. Shaw, who currently heads the firm’s real estate practice, and Campbell, responsible for the projects team, both sit on D&W’s management board. D&W chief executive Neil Cochran said the joint appointments reflected the firm’s dual approach to management. “Everyone will benefit from their shared vision,” he said "They have complementary skills and are ideally placed to drive D&W’s future ambitions and make the most of the many opportunities we believe are ahead of us." The news coincided with the announcement by Dundas that it had achieved a 20 per cent rise in half-year income for the six months to 30 October, to £25m.
