THE DIRECTORS

MEET OUR EXPERTS

Team

OUR DIRECTORS HAVE A REPUTATION FOR AWARD WINNING DESIGN, DELIVERY AND FOR SUPPORTING AMBITIOUS INDIVIDUALS WHO DEVELOP INTO LEADERS WITHIN THEIR FIELD.

Our success is attributed to our team. Every colleague has a positive approach to change, is dedicated to detail and committed to innovation that delivers exciting results.

MARTIN WALSH

Managing Director

Martin is instrumental in all areas of the business that he created more than four decades ago!

Collecting an impressive portfolio of work under Martin’s direction, the team has delivered more than 6000 projects. Quietly, yet confidently he has grown and extended MWA’s footprint nationwide and into diverse sectors.

Looking for a conversation outside of the world of work, just ask martin about his three favourite things – his grandkids, keeping active and Filey of course!

DAMIAN WALSH

Finance Director

Damian takes care of the foundations, driving the business to deliver against the highest industry standards.

Managing the day-to-day running, Damian is at the heart of the brands high standards, accreditations, and continuous commitment to change and development.

A self-confessed lover of music and serial networker, Damian likes to bring his early music career into his world of work, helping to run the West Yorkshire Suits & Vinyl networking events. Once a lead singer in a rock band, he loves nothing more than reliving his days on the road and radio!

Damian has recently been coaxed out of retirement to reform his band Hookjaw so watch this space! Keeping him busy outside of the office and music is his daughter, twin sons and four rescue cats! Yes four!

MATTHEW ROBINSON

Director

Matthew specialises in commercial and industrial build projects nationwide.

Starting his career at MWA, Matthew became a director in 2014 when he also achieved his chartered status after studying part-time. Committed to being at the forefront of leading technology, Matthew is also a BIM champion.

A lover of playing golf poorly (his words not ours!), Matt enjoys watching football and managing his local team, Hade Edge in Holmfirth. Although he would like to play American Football he’s not sure he’d last more than 30 seconds, so instead takes great enjoyment in watching the game. Fine dining is also on his list of favourite things too.

As dad to Edward, Matt is often watching his son’s favourite film the Greatest Showman and can always be coerced into offering a verse or two!

MARCUS WALSH

Director

Marcus supports all sector activity and is passionate about creating space that grows and evolves a business.

Marcus joined the business in 2001 after starting his career in London with Costain Construction. As a Technical Director he is responsible for delivering complex schemes from inception through to completion. His wealth of experience includes residential, retail, education, commercial and industrial developments across the UK.

Outside of the office you’ll catch Marcus with his two sons, Oliver and George. A huge sports fan, he loves playing tennis, golf and watching rugby. Turning his early aspiration of becoming a marine biologist into a hobby, he has also been known to take part in a dive or two – sharks and all!

I love nothing more than sharing my broad knowledge with the team, from the industrial sheds that I created when I started out in my career to the master planning projects that deliver communities and not just homes. There’s nothing better! There’s no other career for me.
