Victoria Manston promoted to Development Director

We are pleased to announce the promotion of Victoria Manston to the role of Development Director, to oversee the full development process across several of our major projects. Read more in React, Property Week, BTR News.

Victoria, who is a fully qualified town planner, first joined HUB in 2020 as a Development Manager. She has played a pivotal role across multiple projects including a new mixed-use town centre development in Maidenhead, and a major new BTR development in Leeds. She has been instrumental in driving our community engagement initiatives, including developing strategies for digital engagement, helping to access harder-to-reach communities.

Victoria Manston says: “I'm thrilled to have been promoted to the role of Development Director at HUB where we have a fantastic track record of delivering great places. I am looking forward to working on new projects in our pipeline that will see us raise the bar even further in terms of social value, sustainability, and design quality- all things about which I am passionate.”

Damien Sharkey says: “Victoria has played an integral role in the growth and success of HUB since she joined us three years ago. She has been a driving force in helping us achieve planning consents and delivering complex multi-phase schemes. This is a hugely exciting time for HUB as we continue to expand our pipeline across the UK, and we hope to further bolster our leadership team as we move forward.”

Victoria’s promotion follows the recent hire of Rory Martin, a Land Acquisition Manager, who joins to help the HUB team identify and acquire new sites across the UK. The business is also currently recruiting for two new Development Managers to help deliver its ambitious pipeline.
