Maggie Grogan, development director at nationwide placemaker, Muse, has been promoted to Managing Director – Midlands, in recognition of her major contribution to both the business in the North West and its growth in the Midlands.
Muse’s involvement in the Midlands region has accelerated in the past six months, after being named the development partner for the place-changing £3.2bn, 346-acre Arden Cross regeneration, opening its regional base in Birmingham city centre and most recently, its joint venture with Legal & General and Homes England, The English Cities Fund, signing a memorandum of understanding with City of Wolverhampton Council to look at potential opportunities in the city.
Solihull-born, Grogan, joined Muse during the height of the pandemic in 2020 as senior development manager, working on a range of projects, including in Chester and Salford Central. Following The English Cities Fund’s – the national joint venture between Muse, Legal & General and Homes England – appointment to the £2.5bn, 250-acre Crescent Salford masterplan, Maggie was promoted to the role of Development Director in recognition of her efforts.
On her promotion, Maggie Grogan, Managing Director – Midlands at Muse, said: “I’m proud to have been given the opportunity to lead our growth in the Midlands and support the delivery of the Midlands Engine.
“Being from the region, I’m excited that our business will play a part in building a brighter future, together with partners right across the region, as we create opportunities for growth, investment and prosperity.
“Our work at Arden Cross and most recently in Wolverhampton, is just the start of our expansion and it’s a perfect example of the scale and types of place-changing regeneration we can deliver for communities.”
Rosalind Futter, Finance Director, added: “Maggie epitomises what we’re about as a business and I’m delighted to welcome her onto the senior leadership team at Muse.
“Maggie is passionate and driven about creating better places for communities and we couldn’t think of anyone better to spearhead our growth in the region.”
