Appointment

Urban Splash makes another senior hire



Urban Splash has announced the appointment of Greg Ball as a senior development manager.

Greg has managed regeneration schemes including Muse’s Cheadle Royal, Stockport Exchange and, most recently, he worked with U+I to oversee the regeneration of the £1.4bn Mayfield site in Manchester City Centre.

In his new role, Greg will manage the company’s regeneration of Park Hill in Sheffield and other developments in its northern portfolio.

“I’m lucky to have enjoyed a varied property career which has allowed me to deliver some very exciting and notable developments,” said Greg.

“To add Park Hill — and Urban Splash — to my portfolio is something I am incredibly proud of. 

“We are at a pivotal stage on site, bringing the next phase of homes and commercial space to market, while also working with partners to transform other areas of the building.

“I am delighted to be working alongside my new colleagues … as well as working on many other complex, challenging, yet rewarding projects with the company in the future.”

Tom Bloxham, chairman at Urban Splash, added: “It’s great to have Greg on board as our 27th new recruit this year; he brings with him great talent and experience from his previous work at Muse and U+I and we are all looking forward to working with him.

“It’s positive that even in these challenging times, Urban Splash remains committed to growth and continues to create more jobs.

“We look forward to recruiting more ambitious, original thinkers and natural collaborators to join our teams.” 

The company has hired 27 new colleagues since January across a range of departments, including assembling its development team in Cambridgeshire where it will soon commence work on the creation of a new neighbourhood at Inholm, Northstowe.
