Morganstone, a leading Welsh construction company and one of Wales’ fastest growing firms, has appointed a new operations manager to oversee its growing residential portfolio.
The company has hired Chris Edge as its new operations manager. Based in Swansea, Edge brings with him over 25 years of experience in the private housing sector leading both technical and construction teams.
Ian Morgan, managing director of Morganstone, said:
“The very high standards we insist on at Morganstone means that we look for the very best people who can liaise with contractors and members of the community alike. Chris is more than qualified to do this.
“Chris understands the positive impact we want to have as a firm and is keen to help us not only with the private housing sector but also with our community engagement. He knows that we dedicate a lot of time to helping schools and charities in whatever area we are working in.”
Of his appointment Edge said:
“Having worked in the private housing sector for over 25 years, leading both construction and technical teams, I know how to ensure developments are well planned, resourced and commenced in a manner that ensures delivery to the desired programme and quality.
“These leadership skills enable me to motivate a team of managers and contractors ensuring they buy into and achieve given goals. I am looking forward to working with the Morganstone team as an operations manager.
“I’ve worked with some great companies over the years, but I have been impressed with the Morganstone values and I can’t wait to see where we take the business.”
With offices in Llanelli and Cardiff, Morganstone specialises in providing high quality development solutions for housing associations, public sector bodies, local authorities and private developers.
