Milligan hires new Head of Development, Jon Munce

We’re thrilled to announce the appointment of ex-Queensberry and Multi Development director, Jon Munce.

Jon will head up our development team, overseeing the delivery of major mixed-use projects in the UK. Jon has over 30 years of experience in the construction and property industry both in the UK and overseas. He has been heavily involved in major urban regeneration schemes including Victoria Square in Belfast, Southgate in Bath, Friars Walk in Newport, The Glassworks in Barnsley and Heart of The City II in Sheffield.

Stuart Harris, Milligan COO welcomed Jon to the team by saying “Jon and I have worked together for over 17 years, first at Multi Development then as co-founders of Queensberry. He’s delivered many complex schemes over the years and I’m thrilled that he’s joined the team here at Milligan. We are working on some very exciting projects as we diversify our expertise to meet the challenges of creating developments that deliver value for investors and communities.

“In the past few years, we’ve grown our business working alongside local authorities, banks and owners to define the next generation of mixed-use destinations and the roles of retail, leisure and residential within them. Jon’s experience will ensure we find the best and most sustainable methods of delivering these projects on time and on budget.”

Jon Munce said “Milligan is well known for its innovative approach to repositioning and development. It’s a unique sort of company with the knowledge and experience of a big corporate, but the agility, collaborative nature, creativity and innovative approach of a young start-up.

“I’m looking forward to working with a great group of people and being part of a company with big ambitions. Our project the Gateway, near Chesterfield in the Peak District National Park will change the face of tourism in the UK and pave the way as a Net Zero exemplar.”

Jon joined the company at the end of March 2022.
