Simply UK adds to senior management team
Glasgow-based real estate developer Simply UK has expanded its senior management team with the appointment of Andy Curran as commercial director and Alistair Murray as head of procurement.
They will be based from the company headquarters in Baillieston.
Andy brings around 18 years industry and surveying experience and was formerly commercial director with McCarthy & Stone. He will be responsible for managing and maximising all commercial opportunities, in respect of care home development from land appraisals to final account transfer to Simply UK’s care home provider Morar Living.
He will work closely with Alistair, who has more than 35 years of experience in procurement with leading companies within the Scottish construction sector. He will play a vital role in project overseeing and managing Simply’s procurement procedures.
In addition to Mr Curran and Mr Murray, Simply has also boosted its head office admin team with the appointments of Stacey Laidlaw within commercial operations and Gemma Scott within accounts.
Gary Sharp, managing director of Simply UK, said: “Andy and Alistair are valuable additions to our senior management team. They both have a wealth of experience in the construction sector and are well established and highly respected across the Scottish market.
“We launched the Morar Living brand earlier this year and our portfolio is leading the way across the healthcare and senior living sector. These appointments will ensure that we are able to continue our ambitious development and expansion plans, bringing luxury state-of-the-art care homes to communities across Scotland and the rest of the UK.”
