LONDON-BASED CPMG Architects has announced the appointment of Richard Flisher as the firm’s new managing director.
Richard has more than 30 years’ experience as a chartered architect and is responsible for delivering the UK’s first Carbon Negative, PassivHaus certified office building located in Leicester, a 15,000m2 corporate office in the City of London and the recently completed headquarters for British Sugar in Peterborough.
He will continue to act as an architect on key projects, as well leading on CPMG’s long-term growth strategy, ensuring the business continues to meet and exceed its targets.
He said: “CPMG is a great place to work; I’ve been with the business for more than 20 years during which time I have had the opportunity to be involved in some iconic projects across the UK, in Central Europe and in Abu Dhabi, China and Bangladesh, in addition to launching an office in London.
“We continue to secure more work in the capital and expand our portfolio further in the education, residential, commercial and advanced manufacturing sectors and I’m confident that our planned growth in London will give us opportunities to deliver more projects abroad.
“Design is an international language and is a fantastic export opportunity for the UK. We’ve already had some success in the international marketplace and I will be using my existing connections to identify new growth opportunities abroad.”
CPMG has designed several high-profile developments across the UK and especially in London, including HMS Belfast Visitor Centre, John Pye & Sons Luxury Assets showroom on Old Bond Street, the Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks HQ in Greenwich and schools in Beckenham, Wimbledon and Ilford.
“I’m looking forward to working with my fellow board members and our talented team of architects, technologists and interior designers to continually deliver outstanding designs to all clients,” he added.
Richard will head up the 50-strong team of professionals based in London and Nottingham.
His new position also sees changes to the roles and responsibilities of some directors with Nick Gregory heading up business development and Chris White continuing to lead on expanding the London office.
