Development & Construction Director
Mike is considered in his views and draws on his extensive experience in providing the leadership for our construction and development teams. His solid knowledge, deep networks and generosity in sharing both have positioned us strongly as we commence on site across our projects. Mike oversees a multidisciplinary team – managing large budgets, complex activities and risks. He’s highly organised when bringing people together around challenges and opportunities.
Mike Maxwell leads the team responsible for delivery of our construction projects at Guild Living. Mike’s spent 30 years working in development, contracting and construction consultancy.
He graduated in 1990 with a BSc in Construction Management, working for the first 12 years of his career with a UK top 10 construction contractor gathering practical knowledge and skills relating to the delivery of complex residential and mixed-use and other sector developments.
A move in 2002 to one of the UK’s largest FTSE 100 consultancy firms led to a 15-year period where Mike delivered construction and project management services, becoming the business unit and sector led for Construction Management within the company. Mike’s last role before joining Guild Living was Regional Operations Director at Lovell Partnerships Ltd, where he was responsible for operational matters relating to the delivery of contracting and development projects throughout London and the Northern Home Counties.
