Architect 3DReid has expanded its senior team in Manchester with the appointment of Cathy Mocke as a director.
Mocke, who has already started work with the Cross Street-based practice, has extensive experience of UK and international projects, largely in the hospitality and residential sectors, as well as considerable senior management experience.
She most recently worked as the in-house design director of Select Property Group, overseeing design for its Vita student, Citysuites aparthotel and Affinity Living PRS brands.
She said: “I’m excited to be taking up a senior position in an established practice that has the vision and commitment to vigorously develop opportunities in Manchester. I’ve already been able to use my experience on some key local projects, including major city centre office refurbishments and residential developments.”
Before working for Select, Mocke spent more than a decade with Denton Corker Marshall in London, becoming a partner before spending two years in Asia, working mainly on hospitality and residential projects.
Mark Taylor, board director at 3DReid, said: “Cathy is an immensely important addition to our Manchester team, bringing architectural and interior design, management and client-side experience.
“3DReid is already active in the region, but Cathy’s knowledge and understanding will help reinforce our position as a local practice with big plans to make the most of the buoyant Manchester market.”
