Muse brings in McManaman
Having previously headed teams at Miller, Harrison and United Living, Stephen McManaman has joined the developer as director of project management for Yorkshire & the North East.
McManaman brings more than 35 years’ experience to the business, having led regional project management teams at both Miller Construction – where he was Yorkshire area director – and Harrison Developments, more recently working as operations director at United Living (North).
His achievements include overseeing delivery of the first phases of the £120m Points Cross development, which includes 498 homes, and the refurbishment of a listed building which went onto house City of York Council.
McManaman said: “I’m proud to be joining Muse and supporting the business’ next stage of growth both in Yorkshire and the North East. Muse’s work, which is delivered through positive, long-term partnerships, is totally community focused and I’m looking forward to working with a tenacious team of professionals to achieve our collective goals.”
James Pitt, managing director – Yorkshire & North East at Muse, added: “As a business, we’re committed to expanding our team with the right people to deliver places that really matter to people, and we’re delighted to have appointed Stephen.
“It’s an exciting time at Muse, as we continue on our ambitious path to growth, through a progressive portfolio of place-changing regeneration that creates opportunities and builds a brighter future for all.”
Muse projects in Yorkshire include work in Leeds and the Forge Island project in Rotherham, with much attention this year focusing on One City Park and the Bradford City Village project, as part of the English Cities Fund partnership.
In the North East, Muse has been engaged on the long-term 56-acre Northshore regeneration project in Stockton-on-Tees, where it is closing in on the completion of phase four.
