New directors join the board at McMullen Facades

Leading major facades specialist McMullen Facades, part of the Lakesmere Group, has added further strength to its board of directors with two new key appointments.

Clifton Smyth (left) and Danny Hampshire (right), both of whom held prior positions at McMullen, have been appointed to the roles of pre-construction director and commercial director respectively. Bringing with them a wealth of construction industry experience, the duo will play a vital role in driving McMullen’s position as the leading UK based specialist contractor equipped to design, manufacture and install unitised facades for high-rise projects.

A familiar face to many within the industry, Clifton Smyth joined McMullen Facades as pre-construction manager in 2014, having previously held senior management and consulting roles with contractors in both the UK and overseas. Since joining the company Clifton has been instrumental in developing the façade specialist’s presence in the London residential and commercial markets.  In his new directorial role he will head up the McMullen’s pre-construction team and continue to provide support for clients at pre-construction stage identifying commercially viable and innovative technical solutions for complex glazing and façade contracts.

Danny Hampshire has over twenty years’ commercial experience in the specialist glass façade sector and has been promoted from the role of commercial manager with McMullen Facades. After joining the McMullen team in 2014, Danny has been heavily involved in the management and delivery of a number of major façade contracts including the Central Square commercial development in West Yorkshire and the 23-story Elephant Road high-rise residential scheme in London.

As McMullen’s new commercial director, Danny’s duties will include providing leadership for the specialist’s busy commercial department and overseeing the commercial aspects of contracts from pre-construction stage to completion.  Danny will also work closely with both supply chain partners and clients to further strengthen relationships and ensure positive and reliable project delivery.

Ronnie Mills, managing director of McMullen Facades said: “This is an exciting period of growth for McMullen Facades as we continue to secure some of the most prestigious projects in London and other major cities throughout the UK, rightfully earning the reputation as a company who can safely deliver quality.

Clifton and Danny have both proved themselves to be a valuable part of the McMullen Facades team and their combined years of experience will further strengthen the board in their respective areas of expertise. I wish them every success in their new roles and look forward to continuing working with them to further our position as the UK’s preferred specialist contractor.”
