Mount Anvil’s ability to improve the viability, design, as well as creating more homes provides a win-win for the partnership and community.

Rod Cahill

Fomer CEO at Catalyst and Sage

We’ve been doing it for thirty years. London's our home, and we’re all in.

We delivered Wyvil Primary school as part of our Keybridge development in Lambeth. Hear how their headmaster found working with us:

Meet a few of our senior team

All unusually hands-on.
Unusually, all shareholders.
We're an established team who aren't spread across dozens of projects - we obsess over a handful of major schemes, and deliver quality.

  • Here's a few of us

Nyron Higgins,
Project Director

Nyron’s a Project Director who’s been creating outstanding places in London for 11 years. It takes him an extra long time to walk down South Lambeth Road (near our Keybridge development), because of bumping into all of the local residents and business owners that he’s got to know so well on the project. 

Killian Hurley,
CEO

Killian co-founded Mount Anvil in 1991. He’s part of the fabric of development in London and the reason we’re all-in in this great city, as well as having been described as “always the most quotable on a panel”.  He’s on Munster Rugby’s commercial advisory board and will brave a sea swim at temperatures that others baulk at.

Emma Norris,
Head of Cost Planning

Emma’s responsible for setting and analysing our construction budgets and spending patterns to make sure our homes are built to last, not built on the cheap. Over the years she’s learnt to make herself and her data impossible to ignore. She’s been recognised in the industry for her passion for seeing the end of tokenism - in fact, one of her favourite subjects is what can be done to make construction and development visible and attractive to everyone.

Luke Taylor,
Operations Director

Luke is responsible for leading our in-house building teams. He brought to us a decade of Berkeley Homes experience, his RICS-Chartered status and an obsession for making things work better.  Since then his drive has helped us win rave reviews for our partners for the timeliness, value and quality of the homes and places we create (and he’s become the undisputed top draft pick in Mount Anvil netball games).

Alan Edgar,
Delivery Director

Alan is a chartered architect and ex-Berkeley MD who epitomises our ‘measure twice, cut once’ approach to quality. He leads our technical teams, where his exacting expectations and attention to detail set the standard for a delivery function obsessed with delivering quality. He’s an outdoorsy type, often found at the weekend setting up a technically precise family camping setup.

Ewan Anderson,
Group Financial Director

Ewan‘s decades of experience at PLC firms like Miller Homes give our joint venture partners great confidence as he handles the trickiest of transactions with diligence and good humour. He has long-held relationships with banks that help them to lend to us even when they doubt others, and when he’s not leading our finance department he’ll be found by the side of a stream in his native Scotland.

Darragh Hurley,
Managing Director

Proud dad Darragh learned the London ropes early thanks to his father Killian, and honed his skills in New York at Goldman Sachs. Now as MD he takes responsibility for making sure we have the right talent in the right positions, and a culture that unleashes people’s potential. You’ll catch him at his best when he’s fresh from doing handstand press-ups at the gym.

Marcus Bate,
Investment Director

Marcus is fuelled by a passion for creating outstanding places and top tier law firm experience advising local authorities, TfL, GLA, overseas investors, pension funds, lenders, housebuilders, strategic land companies, private owners of super prime properties, consortia promoting nuclear power stations....and Mount Anvil. He’s now the brains behind our ability to bake a bigger cake, so that there’s more to share around by way of community facilities and affordable homes.  He’s also multilingual (but exclusively in languages that fell out of favour BC).

Lisa Ravenscroft,
Chief Marketing Officer

Lisa comes from leadership roles in commercial marketing and brand strategy for some of the biggest FTSE companies (BT, Vodafone), and brings rigour and creativity to how we bring our schemes to market, resulting in three of London’s biggest launches in a row.  When she’s not knee-deep in data or developing our proposition, she’s probably playing sport with rather more commitment than skill.

Jon Hall,
Group Sales Director

Responsible for over £1bn of London sales in his career, Jon has an industry reputation as illustrious as his results. He works with our vast trove of selling agents and drives the quality and finesse of our product, resulting in three of London’s fastest-selling schemes in a row.  He’s an all-action dad of four who can still impress the children with a wheelie on a BMX, but is more often found telling us the stats from his Peloton.

James Begley,
Technology & People Operations Director

James is responsible for the technology that underpins our data-driven approach.  Construction tools that help us raise the bar on quality, a Salesforce stack that drives our index-beating sales results, and the continuous improvements to our systems and People Operations that fuel our culture.  He also brings the rigour and attention to detail of an Accenture-trained technology expert to improving his already-impressive golf swing.

James Owen,
Land Director

James is responsible for our land investments, which requires a keen knowledge of London and a nuanced understanding of Mount Anvil’s strategy and strengths. Being a 14 year MA veteran helps. He’s a well-known industry figure who invests care and attention in his relationships, and his London pride peaks when Arsenal are winning.
