HBD hires director

Chris Stalker previously worked closely with the developer on the delivery of the £250m Kampus in Manchester, a joint venture between HBD and Capital&Centric.

Stalker has also worked for Arup and Urban Splash. His past projects include Castlefield and New Islington in Manchester.

As a director at HBD, Stalker will be based in the company’s Manchester office. However, he will work on projects across the country.

“I’ve worked with HBD for several years as we brought Kampus forward from concept to reality – it was a massive project that I’m really proud of,” Stalker said.

“HBD is working on some really exciting schemes that include a lot of the elements I’m interested in so I’m really looking forward to getting started on those new challenges.”

Stalker’s hire comes as HBD takes on several big residential and urban regeneration schemes, including the £1bn Golden Valley Development in Cheltenham, the £20m Equitable Building off Manchester’s St Ann’s Square, and £32m Setl in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Adam Brady, executive director at HBD, said Stalker’s appointment was “a key part” of the company’s strategy to grow its residential and urban regeneration pipeline.

“He brings years of experience delivering these types of projects and his instinctive feel for great placemaking and the elements that make a scheme special will be a huge asset,” Brady said.
