Duncan Firth

Duncan joined Walker Sime in April 2015. The core objective in bringing Duncan into the business was to establish and lead the Project Management service line and bring his experience and skills to bear in our aspiration to grow the business. Duncan’s style and approach to Project Management is very much in line with our core values and has enabled the service line to grow rapidly to 14 dedicated project managers and rising.


Duncan is a passionate Manchester City fan and can often be seen on the terraces with Derek and Jon. As part of Walker Sime’s plan for globalisation Duncan is currently attending night school to study Spanish. This also has the added advantage of enabling Duncan to converse with his Spanish in-laws!

When not in work Duncan is passionate about spending quality time with his 3 children, family and friends and generally being as gregarious as possible!


Duncan’s style in delivering projects is that the process is essential, but done in a robotic manner can be more of a hindrance than a help. It is often a forgotten fact that Clients, projects and project teams are different. After all, they are made up of real people!

Duncan likes to successfully mix leadership, process, administration and management in the correct proportions to match the requirements of each project. It comes down to the fact that he and his team care and do what is needed to match or surpass the aspirations of our Clients.
