Area is delighted to announce the appointment of Steve Baldock in the role of Director.
Having worked in the construction industry for over 25 years, Steve comes from a traditional contracting background and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his new role.
Responsible for developing new relationships and exploring new markets, Steve will be focusing on strengthening and broadening the talents of his team to further entrench the Area name in the property and construction sector.
A well-known figure in the industry, Steve joins from design and fit-out business Tetris-bluu. Before this he worked for the likes of construction and development company Wates, construction management company Structure Tone, and design group Pacific Interior.
His career highlights include helping to deliver a major data centre roll-out throughout Europe in the 1990s, and more recently being involved with projects for American Express, Microsoft Research, Twitter, the ACCA, and Hasbro.
Steve comments: “It’s a pleasure to start working for Area. What I like about the business is the shared values and the ‘can-do’ attitude that the team upholds. The foundation of a strong team is built on this attitude and passion, and contributes to a shared vision of what needs to be achieved.
I’m looking forward to working with the team to develop the existing relationships we share with our supply chain, and seek out new opportunities within the market.”
Gary Chandler, CEO of Area, adds: “We are thrilled to welcome Steve to Area. With 25 years’ of industry experience and knowledge, alongside his enthusiasm, knowledge and positive attitude, Steve will be a fantastic addition to the team.”
For many years Steve enjoyed sailing and racing to a semi-professional level, having raced in major events across the globe, including the Sydney Hobart, New York Bermuda and Rolex Fastnet. In more recent times he enjoys cycling and fly-fishing, as a more relaxing pastime!
