My twenty years with Stride Treglown have involved a broad range of sectors – from health, leisure and retail projects to masterplanning and peer reviews. In recent years my focus has been on developing the design and delivery capability of our education team internationally.

As chairman, I work with all parts of the practice to maintain the progress of Stride Treglown as an important player in the architectural scene, and the evolution of our employee-ownership journey. Nevertheless, I still maintain a hands-on involvement with design work and a determination not to lose a connection with the thing I like doing best – creating great buildings.
