Cathedral chief Evans calls it a day

  • Comment

Cathedral’s Martyn Evans has resigned from his role as creative director at the forward-thinking developer

Evans said he had not yet decided what he would do after his departure, but was planning to stay with the company until its move into a new headquarters at the end of the year.

In mid-December the developer and its parent company Development Securities (DevSec) will relocate to a shared office in Howick Place - a 3,065mbuilding in Victoria, London which is currently being overhauled by Ab Rogers and Coffey Architects.

The architectural champion said his resignation was not linked to Cathedrals’ purchase by property giant DevSec in May 2014 (AJ 14.05.14).

Evans told the AJ: ‘I have worked with [Cathedral’s chief executive] Richard Upton for 16 years. I have been running the merger process so when the challenge of the move has been [overcome] it will seem like the right moment time to do something new.

He added: ‘I have numerous irons in the fire. Over the last few years I have been working with some of the best architects in the country - and that has been gigantically rewarding.

‘So I’d be very surprised if I was not working with people whose talent I greatly admire in the near future.’
