Steve Bangs Succeeds Mark Dickinson as Managing Director
Anthology, London residential developer backed by Oaktree, has promoted current Chief Operating Officer Steve Bangs, to Managing Director. Steve takes over the role from Mark Dickinson who will remain as non-Executive Chairman at Anthology as well as taking up a new challenge as CEO with specialist age property developer, PegasusLife Group.
Steve has been COO since joining Anthology in 2014 and has over 30 years’ experience working for major building contractors and residential property developers, previously holding Managing Director roles at Linden Homes and Berkeley Homes.
During the last five years with Anthology, Steve has established the company’s operational processes to ensure a strong delivery of build quality and customer service across its four live developments in London: Deptford Foundry, Hoxton Press, Wembley Parade and Hale Works.
Steve Bangs, Managing Director at Anthology said:
“Working with Mark to build Anthology over the past five years has been an absolute pleasure, and it’s fantastic that Mark will continue to provide his expertise, dedication and direction to Anthology as Chairman, while embracing the new challenge with PegasusLife. Mark’s vision and leadership has made Anthology what it is today and myself and the rest of the team are committed to maintaining its growth and success as we expand our reach across London.”
Mark Dickinson, Chairman at Anthology said:
“I’m excited to embark on my new role with PegasusLife but this is bitter sweet as I step away from my full-time role with Anthology, as it’s a business that the team and I have grown together over the last five years. The change of my role is testament to the strength of the business and to be able to put our succession place, shows the development of skills, experience and capability across the whole team.
“Although my role with Anthology has changed, as Chairman, I will continue to focus on the business’ strategy, the relationship with our investors and working towards securing sustainable projects for Anthology’s optimistic future.”
Anthology has recently bolstered its portfolio with the acquisition of two sites in Kennington and Stratford.
