New managing director for CPMG Architects

Richard Flisher to focus on exporting design

CPMG Architects has announced the appointment of Richard Flisher as its new managing director.

Flisher has more than 30 years experience as a chartered architect and was responsible for delivering the UK’s first carbon-negative, PassivHaus-certified office building, among other major infrastructure projects.

He will continue to act as an architect on key projects, as well leading on CPMG’s long-term growth strategy, ensuring the business continues to meet and exceed its targets.

He said: “I’ve been with the business for more than 20 years, during which time I have had the opportunity to be involved in some iconic projects across the UK, in Central Europe and in Abu Dhabi, China and Bangladesh, in addition to launching an office in London.

“We continue to secure more work in the capital and expand our portfolio further in the education, residential, commercial and advanced manufacturing sectors and I’m confident our planned growth in London will give us opportunities to deliver more projects abroad.

“Design is an international language and is a fantastic export opportunity for the UK. We’ve already had some success in the international marketplace and I will be using my existing connections to identify new growth opportunities abroad.”

He will head up the 50-strong team of professionals based in London and Nottingham.

His new position also sees changes to the roles and responsibilities of some directors with Nick Gregory heading up business development and Chris White continuing to lead on expanding the London office.
