Rising talent puts the future in focus

In my first announcement as CEO of MLA, I am excited to share that we are promoting four key members of our team to help strengthen our practice.

Our focus on investing in rising talent from within the practice sets us up for a new period of growth and success. Our new directors, Hazel Pearson, Adam Frickleton, Garth Fitzsimons and Gordon Yeaman bring with them a fantastic balance of skills and talent.

We’re delighted that this cohort reflect our design-led, commercially astute and people-focused formula. Each of our new directors has been active in developing our vision and culture and have demonstrated their commitment to our future. In turn, we wish to demonstrate our commitment to theirs.

These appointments create an expanded management team and give me great confidence that as we grow our clients and colleagues will be in good hands.

Each Director brings their unique strengths to the team, yet collectively, we benefit from their enthusiasm, passion and the rapport they have built with clients and colleagues. Beyond their strong relationships and design talents our business benefits from their strategic thinking, complex problem solving, project delivery and commerciality.

Their talent and experience enhances different areas of our business. Hazel and Gordon continue to strengthen our Interiors and Workplace consultancy, while Adam and Garth expand their roles within our Architectural offer.

Together we believe this team of rising talent puts our business in the best place to serve our clients now and in the future.
