WilkinsonEyre appoints two new Directors as part of succession strategy

WilkinsonEyre is delighted to announce the appointment of Melissa Clinch and Ayman El Hibri to the role of Director. These promotions follow the practice’s restructure to an Employee Ownership Trust in March 2023, which took place as part our ongoing succession strategy, and has opened up opportunities for new directors to further the ongoing development of the business.

Ayman El Hibri:

The pair will focus on growing the practice’s business in the UK and internationally, whilst strengthening its Social Value and Sustainability offer through research and project development.

“WilkinsonEyre has recently enjoyed a period of great success with an expanding spread of projects in the UK including Battersea Power Station, 8 Bishopsgate, HS2 Old Oak Common, and 21 Moorfields; as well as a growing international portfolio including One Bangaroo in Sydney and CIBC Square in Toronto” said Oliver Tyler, the practice’s Managing Director. “The addition of Melissa and Ayman as Directors will continue this positive growth whilst bolstering our management team for the future.”

Melissa Clinch joined Wilkinson Eyre in 2010 and has significant experience of delivering projects of high value and complexity. She was part of the leadership team for the design and delivery of the 21
Moorfields Grade A Office Development in the City of London, a project which reconciles challenging,
structural and geometric constraints to deliver a new home for Deutsche Bank on one of the City’s most complex sites.

Ayman El Hibri joined WilkinsonEyre in 2009. He has extensive experience leading and managing large multifaceted projects, including the award winning 8 Bishopsgate, a 50 storey mixed-use scheme in the City of London. Ayman holds a Masters in Environmental Design and plays a leading role in the practice’s Sustainability Group.

Melissa and Ayman join Ed Daines, who was recently promoted to Director of our Australian studio in
Sydney and is leading WilkinsonEyre’s growth in the region.

8 Finsbury Circus London
WilkinsonEyre has completed work on 8 Finsbury Circus, a £68 million commercial development in the City of London for Mitsubishi Estate London Limited and Stanhope.

The scheme works to the client’s overall requirements for an ‘exemplary’ new office building in this historic City setting. The site, which is adjacent to the listed Britannic House by Edwin Lutyens, has access from both Finsbury Circus and South Place.

The main challenge was convincing the City Planners to allow the demolition of the existing building. WilkinsonEyre’s proposals maximise the full development potential of the extremely constrained site, whilst respecting the surrounding listed buildings.

An art installation by Carpenter Lowings, commissioned for the project, runs the full height of a lightwell which, brings daylight down through the building and provides a visible connection between floors.
