Ben Richardson, formerly sales and marketing manager for West Properties, the Irish developer behind several residential-led schemes in Manchester including Origin and Skyline Central, has started trading with his new venture, a property marketing studio called Stepladder Communications.
In an email sent to contacts last week Richardson, a well-known face on the Manchester property social scene, said: "Following a month of relaxation in the sun I am now back in the driving seat and looking forward to working on my new venture."
Richardson went on to list more than a dozen services from branding to exhibition design. West will be one of its first clients.
Richardson added: "Initially I will be based in my new London office but we are currently on the look out for space in Manchester."
