London property developer Anthology, has appointed a new Project Director as the company sets its sights on the delivery of 279 homes in Tottenham Hale. The new senior recruit is joined by the additional appointments of a new Sales Manager and Marketing Manager as the business prepares to relocate to larger offices at London Bridge to accommodate its growing team. 

Project Director, Chris Powell will be taking on the all-encompassing role in the anticipated delivery of the 33-storey tower that will form the last phase of Lee Valley Estate’s Hale Village regeneration. He will manage the whole project from commercial, sales and marketing through to customer experience and satisfaction.

Chris joins Anthology with 13 years of industry experience and a detailed understanding of the project management of complex inner-London developments, ranging from mixed-use regeneration to large scale industrial projects. 

Speaking on his appointment Chris said: “Having worked with various property types, I have always gravitated towards the residential sector as I find it satisfying creating lasting legacies for communities. Seeing the homes standing tall at the end of the project is very rewarding, so I can’t wait to get started on our Hale Works development, once it is through the planning process. 

“Logistically, building a 33-storey tower in Tottenham Hale is not for the faint hearted but I am determined to deliver a successful project against a challenging set of constraints, and want to do so by taking the team on a positive journey to deliver fantastic homes for our customers.”

The Hoxton Press development team has been boosted with the appointment of Darren Thompson who joins the company as Sales Manager. Darren has worked across the UK, Middle East and Asia, has over 10 years of experience in sales and investment. His role at Hoxton Press will be to drive the sales of the 198 apartments prior to completion in Summer/Autumn 2018.

New Marketing Manager, Lucy Conlon joins the team to manage the communication activities across the property developer’s four live sites. Lucy who has previously held marketing roles at housing association, Peabody, is excited to join the rapidly growing company and help shape the communication around the business’ focus on creating legacies in communities.     

Mark Dickinson, Managing Director at Anthology said: “Each of these new appointments come at a time of growth for the business and will contribute greatly to a successful ongoing delivery.

“Chris joins us at a particularly critical time at our Hale Works development, as we eagerly await the green light on our proposed plans. This project will form part of our expanding London portfolio that reflects our ambitions of investing in prime regeneration sites, Chris’ project management expertise and passion for working with communities will help ensure a smooth delivery from the outset.

“The extra office space as we prepare to move to our new premises on Borough High Street is much needed as Chris, Darren and Lucy bolster the team and we look to further expand. I wish them all the best in their new roles!”
