The appointments of Jon and Mikel to the Group Board, joining existing Group Board Members Chris Lanksbury, Adrian Griffiths, Tim Partington and Michael Cottam, forms part of Chapman Taylor’s ongoing strategy for successfully transitioning the business leadership to a new generation and ensuring sustainable and successful international growth in the years to come.
Since its founding in 1959, Chapman Taylor has evolved in a very positive way and has grown from a London-based practice into the international group business it is today.
Mikel joined Chapman Taylor in 1997 and became a Director of the Madrid studio in 2003. With a well-established track record, Mikel has experience on major projects across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and South America, with design expertise in retail, leisure, residential, hospitality and mixed-use developments. He is currently the Managing Director in Madrid with responsibility for the leadership and direction of the studio. His extensive design, technical, financial and business skills are well aligned with the Group Board’s future objectives for the continuing growth of Chapman Taylor.
Jon also joined Chapman Taylor in 1997 and his knowledge of the CEE markets and leadership skills have helped our Prague studio become one of the leading architectural businesses in the region. Jon currently leads Chapman Taylor’s OneCEE business, which includes the Prague and Warsaw studios and is dedicated to delivering high-quality architecture to clients in the CEE region, with an emphasis on sustainability and commercial success. His design expertise and experience will complement and strengthen the Group Board’s commitment to continuing to improve the quality of our design work.
