CLS Holdings has appointed Winston Huth-Wallis as development director.

Huth-Wallis has worked at Multiplex Group as construction consultant to the Shard of Glass tower development for two years.

Prior to joining Multiplex, he was part of the Canary Wharf development team and was responsible for the HSBC and the Lehman Brothers buildings.

Huth-Wallis will concentrate on the 1.9m sq ft (176,500 sq m) London Bridge Quarter project, comprising the Shard of Glass and the redevelopment of New London Bridge House, in which CLS has a one third share.

He will also have an involvement in the company’s other longer term developments at Spring Gardens and Vauxhall Cross in London.

CLS executive chairman Sten Mortstedt said: ‘Winston brings a wealth of experience in central London development, in particular building large scale commercial buildings in high density urban areas.’
