Crowther leaves Bruntwood after 26 years
Peter Crowther has left his role as chief development officer at Bruntwood Scitech to explore new opportunities.
Crowther, who is also senior vice president for the British Council for Offices, joined Bruntwood as development director in 1997.
Since then, he has risen through the ranks and was appointed property director, and later chief development officer, of Bruntwood SciTech when the joint venture with Legal & General was formed in 2018.
Crowther has decided to leave Bruntwood just a month after SciTech’s recent £500m equity raise – which saw the Greater Manchester Pension Fund become the consortium’s third partner.
Chris Oglesby, executive chair of Bruntwood SciTech, said: “Pete leaves with the best wishes of the business and colleagues, and I’d personally like to thank him for his significant contributions over his long tenure with us.
“During his time with both Bruntwood and Bruntwood SciTech, Pete has had a massive impact – from his early days in sales to being part of the Manchester city centre management team that oversaw the fast growth of the business in the city through the early 2000s.”
He added: “In his most recent role as chief development officer for Bruntwood SciTech he has led some of the business’ most notable masterplans and redevelopments such as Alderley Park and Met Tower. His biggest legacy though is the quality of the team that he has developed who are without a doubt the best in the industry. We wish him all the very best for the future.”
