Urban Splash welcomes five new colleagues this quarter
Award winning regeneration company Urban Splash has strengthened its team this quarter, appointing five new colleagues across its business, with four taking on roles in the North West.
Liverpool-based Niall Ingham takes on the role of commercial lettings manager having previously held roles with CBRE, Infinitus Property Investment and three years running his own property consultancy. He will now lead deals across the company’s North West commercial portfolio, which in the last quarter Urban Splash has attracted tenants on 18,000 sq ft of space.
Niall is joined by colleagues including Roisin Wallace who joins the Manchester team as residential administrator; Nolly Kikumba joins as maintenance coordinator – helping Urban Splash across its portfolio in the North West – and Tom Lowry, who has taken on the role of development manager in Plymouth, supporting Urban Splash in its work redeveloping the Royal William Yard and Civic Centre schemes in the city.
The appointments are completed with the news that Imogen Boyd joins as management accountant – bolstering the Manchester-based operations team.
The news means that 10 new team members have joined Urban Splash since the spring; speaking of the news, Urban Splash People Partner Amy Dowse said: “It’s a joy to welcome more new colleagues to our team – each of them original thinkers, natural collaborators and disruptors bringing their own skill set as we prepare for the year ahead.
“Our 2024 pipeline is filled with new Urban Splash homes, workspaces and places and these new colleagues will help us deliver those as we strive to create sustainable new places in which people can live, work and play.”
The news comes following a busy period for Urban Splash – a time in which it has celebrated its 30th anniversary. This summer, the company announced two new joint venture partnerships with fellow-Manchester developer Glenbrook, and Grosvenor, while Sheffield City Council also announced the company was preferred bidder on the Cole Brothers building in the city. Its pipeline for 2024 and beyond includes a further phase at Park Hill in Sheffield, Campbell Park Northside in Milton Keynes – its first South East scheme – and new homes and workspaces in Swansea, Windermere and Manchester. Urban Splash is also back onsite at Port Loop in Birmingham creating a new phase of homes.
CEO Julian Curnuck added: “We are working on plans for our future Urban Splash places and I am delighted that we have welcomed a new cohort of talent into our business, each of them equipped to support our growth as we move into the new year.”
