Wykeland Group, the leading commercial property development company, has appointed a new Development Director. Jonathan Stubbs steps up to the Wykeland Board with a brief to fulfil the potential of existing developments and identify new opportunities.
Jonathan Stubbs joined the company two years ago as the Head of Developments. During this period he has played a key role in taking forward a number of schemes, including the £17m Treadmills redevelopment of the former Northallerton Prison site in North Yorkshire, working in partnership with Hambleton District Council.
“I’m delighted and honoured to be offered this opportunity to develop my role and join the Board,” said Stubbs. “In my experience, Wykeland’s ethos of long-term investment and engagement with partners and local people to create high-quality, sustainable developments that deliver commercial and community value, is unique. I’ve really enjoyed being part of that culture and working with the great team at Wykeland.”
In his new role, Jonathan will further enhance the potential of the company’s existing schemes, while identifying new opportunities that would fit its business model.
“Jonathan’s appointment recognises the excellent contribution he has made since joining the business,” commented Wykeland Managing Director, Dominic Gibbons. “Jonathan will focus both on new prospects and evolving developments, such as the Treadmills scheme, further opportunities at Europarc in Grimsby, the development of the former Ramsdens store in Grimsby, and our G@Glasshoughton development off junction 32 of the M62 in West Yorkshire.”
Wykeland has a £250 million development pipeline within the Hull region, with flagship schemes, such as the fast-growing Bridgehead business park close to the Humber Bridge. Wykeland’s other high-profile schemes include the @TheDock development in Hull’s Fruit Market, which features the Centre for Digital Innovation (C4DI) tech hub; the Flemingate mixed-use regeneration scheme in Beverley, East Yorkshire; the Meltonwest business park, west of Hull; and G@Glasshoughton, which comprises four development sites off junction 32 on the M62.
