Stewart Astley

Friday Club Developments welcomes new NED

Manchester-based Friday Club Developments (FCD) has appointed Stewart Astley (pictured above) as a non-executive director.

Stewart has been appointed to the board to advise on the property developer’s growth plans and long-term finance strategy.

He has extensive experience of the property and construction sector, and currently works as the finance director at Sapphire Utility Solutions.

Stewart said: “It’s great to join a business with ambitious growth plans and a secure foundation. 

“This sustainability is what will see FCD become a powerhouse in the property development sector.”

Tony Houlihan, co-founder of FCD, added: “Sean Elliott [co-founder] and I set up this business as friends, and everyone we invite to join us becomes part of the FCD family, sharing the same values. 

“We’re really pleased to have secured Stewart, not only because of the experience, guidance and consultancy he brings, but because he fully understands what we’re trying to achieve and our desire to do the right thing.

“As we move into our next phase of growth, we need to ensure that not only our core values and culture remain at the forefront, but that we have the people, processes and financial credibility to fulfil our potential.”

In addition to its first completed new-build developments in Styal, Cheshire and Fallowfield, Manchester — an almost complete renovation in Didsbury delivered by its newly established construction arm — and its first foray into Preston with a commercial conversion in planning, FCD has increased its pipeline with a range of extra residential and commercial developments across the North West.
