Muse Developments has appointed Catherine Beaumont from Stockport Council's press office as its new communications manager.
Beaumont spent six years at the council and specialised in developing communication strategies for regeneration schemes, major projects and economic development in the borough.
She will be based in Muse's Salford Quays office and will work on Muse's corporate communications and publicity for individual development projects.
Beaumont replaces Claire Hextall who left to start her own business.
Matt Crompton, joint managing director at Muse, said: "It's a really exciting time for Muse with more than 30 development projects underway across the UK, so it's an ideal time to welcome Catherine to the company."
Beaumont said: "Muse has a lot of good news to shout about and positive stories to tell. They're driving forward some innovative, interesting and newsworthy projects, which I'm delighted to have the opportunity to work on. I'm looking forward to working with the teams in Manchester, London, Leeds and Glasgow to boost the company's regional and national profile."
