Keppie Design appoints new managing director
Architecture practice Keppie Design has appointed Peter Moran as its new managing director.
Peter Moran, who will replace Martin English in the role, is a well-known and highly successful Scottish architect with a 25 year track record of UK and international projects.
An executive board director of Keppie, Peter currently manages all public sector activities for the six studio practices across the UK.
David Hardie, Keppie Design’s chairman, said: “We’re delighted that Peter has accepted the managing director’s role. He brings a wealth of talent and experience to the fore of the business, not just from a Scottish perspective, but from projects he has successfully delivered across the UK and overseas.
“We’d also like to acknowledge and thank Martin English for his eight years’ service in the MD role. Martin, who is based in Perth, will now be concentrating on developing Keppie’s Perth and Inverness studios and will also have a particular focus on the growth and successful establishment of our recently opened studio in Aberdeen.”
Peter Moran, who has spent over 25 years at Keppie, added: “I’m honoured and humbled to have been offered this exciting and challenging role by the Keppie board. I’m proud to be part of a continuing heritage that goes way back to 1854 and includes such luminaries as John Keppie, John Honeyman and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. With 6 studios, 160 people in our team and several award winning projects, I look forward to the challenge of developing and driving the business forward.”
