We have strengthened our team in the ’Northern Powerhouse’ region with the appointment of a new business development manager. Charlotte Glover has joined the business in a position intended to drive fitout and refurbishment projects within the north of England.

Charlotte has worked in the construction industry for many years, bringing with her experience of working across construction services including fitout and M&E, and will work for our Fitout England division, operating from our offices in Warrington and Leeds.

The appointment aligns with our ten-year strategy to grow its group turnover to £150million by 2026. CEO Jon Dunwell said the appointment was part of a strategy to build on success the business has already enjoyed in the region. He said:

"Fitout England has a clear strategy for sustained growth in the north of England. Our strategy has been bolstered by recent framework wins with Pagabo, Crown Commercial Services and Procure North West (Lite) and the delivery of high calibre projects such as Sky Garden in Leeds city centre. Charlotte brings with her an enviable amount of connections and a wealth of knowledge in the construction sector, which we believe will help us continue to drive forward, building trust and repeat business."

Charlotte, who came to Morris & Spottiswood through existing relationships, will primarily focus the Manchester and Leeds areas. She will focus on the private sector with the aim of securing commercial office contracts, drawing on the contacts she already has in the north whilst also supporting the public sector pipeline. Charlotte said:

"I know Morris & Spottiswood has a great reputation with a strong pedigree and back catalogue of projects, so I knew this would be a great place to work. The company’s strength in Scotland is being replicated in England, and I look forward to contributing to the growth of the company in the Northern Powerhouse region."
