Chairman and Co-Founder
The least qualified board member. Tom sold fire extinguishers door to door, studied a degree in politics, and ran a market stall down Affleck's Arcade. He made more money sub-letting the space than selling his posters. That's how it started.
As well as steering Urban Splash through the many ups and recent downs of business, Tom chairs the Manchester International Festival and is a trustee of The Tate, Manchester United Foundation and is also Chancellor of The University of Manchester. Tom was awarded an MBE for services to architecture and urban regeneration in 1999.
