Linesight strengthens senior team to support ongoing North American expansion

Global construction consultancy firm, Linesight, has announced the appointment of two new Vice Presidents – Padraig Leahy and Jimmy Hanley, to help support the ongoing expansion of its North American business.  

Padraig Leahy, Vice President, Americas, will manage Linesight’s operations in the Pacific Northwest and Canada, with responsibility for complex mission critical facilities. Padraig is an accomplished leader with extensive national and international experience. He has been advising clients in North America for more than five years in a variety of locations, including New York, Seattle and San Francisco. Under Padraig’s leadership, Linesight’s project team for a prominent technology client grew by a remarkable 35% over the past year.  

“I am honored to begin this new chapter in my career at Linesight, and look forward to expanding our client base in the Pacific Northwest and throughout Canada. My experience in different markets around the world will help me guide our teams to success in new regions,” said Leahy.    

Jimmy Hanley, Vice President, Americas, will assume responsibility for driving growth in the Data Centers, Advanced Technologies and Commercial sectors. Jimmy has spent the last 20-plus years working with clients delivering complex projects and programs across the globe. He has lived and worked in multiple countries and continents. 

“Since joining Linesight just over 12 months ago, my expectations have continually been surpassed by the group's quality, passion and focus at every level,” said Hanley. “I look forward to maintaining the high standard we are known for as we continue our growth in new and existing sectors.” 

Despite challenging market conditions, Linesight continues to grow, with an exciting pipeline of business ahead for the next few years across the Americas. Over the past year alone, the North American business has grown by 10%, with a headcount increase to 300, as well as the addition of two new offices in Vancouver and Boston. Success has largely been driven by strong representation in mission-critical sectors, such as data centers, life sciences and high-tech industrial. Linesight has advised on more than 136 data center projects, 71 life sciences projects and over 287 projects, spread across both the commercial and retail space. 

 “As we strive to make the Americas a leading region for Linesight, we are proud to strengthen and deepen our senior leadership team through the appointments of Padraig and Jimmy. The addition of these talented individuals will enable us to achieve our strategic goals for the Americas while ensuring we continue to best serve the needs of our clients.” said Patrick Ryan, Executive President of the Americas.
