SPA Future Thinking’s group managing director Richard Hepburn is leaving the company to return to the civil and environmental engineering industry.

After seven years at SPA Future Thinking, Hepburn (pictured) is to become divisional MD at ALcontrol Laboratories, a £120m turnover private equity-backed business in the engineering and environmental testing sector.

CEO at SPA Future Thinking Jon Priest commented: “I’ve known Richard for quite a few years and well before the Munro acquisition in April 2011 and I’m absolutely delighted for him. Richard has been pivotal in helping SPA Future Thinking move forward and his tenure as group MD here has been vital in ensuring the business has continued to integrate and grow. We wish him every success in his new role.”

Hepburn said: “My new role takes me almost full circle in engaging with the civil and environmental engineering industry, having graduated and started my career in this sector.”
