Euan Kellie is the newest Fellow of the Royal Town Planning Institute following his election in November. Fellowship is the RTPI's highest membership class.
Euan started his career in 1999 at Warrington Borough Council before going on to work at Drivers Jonas (now Deloitte).
In 2009, he set up Euan Kellie Property Solutions and, since this time, the company has grown year-on-year. As the Founding Director, Euan is responsible for all aspects of the business including financial management, marketing and recruitment. He is also responsible for managing and delivering a range of high profile major projects and has particular expertise in mixed-use, residential led developments.
Newly elected Fellow Euan Kellie FRTPI said:
“I am delighted to have been elected to Fellowship of the RTPI and am very proud to have my contribution recognised by my profession and peers in this way. I am passionate about the value which town planning can bring to creating sustainable communities, and I hope that my appointment as Fellow inspires and encourages others to take an active role in promoting planning as an innovative, dynamic, challenging and rewarding profession.”
Graham Stallwood FRTPI, Chair of the RTPI Board of Trustees said:
“Euan’s commitment to inclusive planning throughout his career has helped ensure individuals, companies and organisations that are not familiar with planning are able to engage with it. His work on regeneration projects – for example in Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool – demonstrates an understanding and commitment to the power of proactive planning. Congratulations Euan.”
Euan is also a published author. His book, Rebuilding Manchester, was published in 2010 and celebrates the regeneration of Manchester city centre in the post-war years, with a particular focus on the rebuilding after the 1996 bombing.
Alongside this he has contributed to other books and professional journals and also lectured at both Salford and Manchester universities as part of the company’s ‘Sharing the Knowledge’ initiative. Euan is also currently contributing his planning and business expertise to a range of charitable projects.
