Code’s co-founders Tony Foggett and Louis Georgiou will also join the new group board, which also includes Simon Price (MD Leeds), Paul Bramwell (MD Birmingham), group CFO Erica Ingham and Chris Broadbent the group COO.

Further additions to the Manchester board include Fiona Hunt, business director Simon Whitaker and planning director Dominic Rebello.

Cooper said: “I am honoured to be working with Chris in leading the continued success of the group, we are part way through a journey that has seen us double the size of the business in the last three years and the strengthening of the group and Manchester boards will position us for continued growth into the future.”

The company has reported three years of strong growth – the Manchester office alone grew by 38% in 2016 – which it aims to replicate across all its offices.
