We'd like to introduce you to one of our new starters...
Thursday 26 January 2017
We've had a range of new staff join us in the last few weeks; we're keen to shine a spotlight on one of these individuals each month, with an emphaisis on the expertise they bring to the company. This week we've spoken to Stuart Newton whose joined us, after a number of years at Lendlease, as a Senior Project Manager in the Arts and Culture team. He shared an overview of his background, as well as what drew him to Buro Four:
What first drew you to a career in project management?
I started my career as a technician installing exhibitions at the Design Museum and subsequently the Tate and V&A Museums. As my career developed I took on more responsibility and progressed into a Project Management consultancy role. Project work has always appealed to me. I enjoy developing good working relationships with new teams of talented people, adapting to the unique challenges that each project presents and the collective hard work and sense of achievement when a project’s vision and aspirations are realised.
What major projects have you worked on during your career to date?
I’ve been fortunate to work in London’s major cultural institutions; The Design Museum, Tate, V&A, Natural History and Science Museums, as well as exciting projects abroad in India and the Middle East. From the hands on installation of Picasso and Warhol artwork at Tate Modern as a young graduate through the recent Project Management of the new Wonderlab gallery at the Science Museum.
What drew you to Buro Four?
I was drawn by Buro Four’s strong industry reputation for quality service. The size of the company was also appealing – big enough to have a strong presence in the market, but a manageable size with a sense of belonging and common goals in the team. The move to Buro Four made sense for me as the company is growing its portfolio of Arts and Heritage projects. Initially I’ll be working as part of the team delivering the new Museum of London at West Smithfield, arguably the most exciting new cultural project in the capital and a project I’m really excited to be part of.
